The smell of spring is enticing me to take my tea outside.
Kim Vogel Sawyer is one of my favorite authors.
I've read many of her books, and "A Promise for Spring" is well worth reading.
As Spring time awakens the beauty of warmth and color, I love to sit out on our patio and watch the birds come and go to the birdfeeder. A good book and a cup of tea make for an enjoyable way to start the morning.
I hope your Spring is not too far in coming.

I read a book yesterday, yes the whole book. Well most of it anyway. When I realized the direction the book was taking, I went to the ending. Do you ever do that?? I ended up crying at the last chapter. The book was a departure from my regular reading. I did not like the language, and the ending left me feeling somewhat that the author was giving liberty that violates moral and ethical laws. However, at the end, as I was weeping, her words dug deep into my heart. I've been too sensitive this last year, things happening in my own life that have ripped me apart.
All day long the words sifted through my mind. I've always been a reader, and books have held a special attraction to me. So much so that I can vividly imagine in my mind the cast of characters, the plot and the story line. I can see the buildings, the furnishings, the costumes. I envision the people, what they look like, their expressions. It's like a movie theater runs in my mind and I see the whole production. So when the words run deep......... my heart tends to follow.
I haven't been on Spiritual Sundays in a while. I've not had things to share, plus not having any comments makes me wonder if I'm just talking to the air.
But do you ever think about how we get involved in the thoughts of the world? This book made me pause and think about how easily we throw our feelings and emotions into the ring. Yet the only one and true answer to all of life's difficulties lies in God's Word.
Among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you have been saved.
BUT GOD!! in his rich mercy and because of HIS great love - saved me! There are no more powerful words then these.
