I have been away from my blog for several days and I have missed you all. I was out of town and dealing with more employment issues, so I wasn't really in the best mindset to post anything. I do want to thank you all for your prayers and advice. It means a lot that people I don't even know would be offering wisdom, support and an extra shout to the Lord. Thanks Debbie for the Casting Crowns song (Praise Him in this Storm)! I have been playing it for days on my iPod and praising His name.
But let's move on from all that sadness to happier thoughts. In Greensboro it is starting to look more like spring and the trees are telling their story. Each March/April this town is blanketed with blossoms from trees, bushes, and flowers that are in full bloom. I love it. It is the best time of year to live here, well, except if you have allergies. I do not, and go all over town and take pictures. This one was taken with my new camera, and I love it.
I used my Macro lens and captured this shot. I love it, did I say that?
I guess spring brings with it an atmosphere of change. Out with the old and in with the new. Easter is certainly about resurrection and renewal. About leaving it all at the cross and becoming a new creature in Him. This year especially, I am laying it down and leaving it all behind me. I am giving all my worries to Him and trusting Him to give me peace and comfort. I can emerge from my bud with pearly new petals and an aroma that is pleasing.
Thanks for thinking of me and checking back to see how I'm doing. I promise some fun posts soon! But if you're going through anything that is breaking you down, like I am, I encourage you to check out Casting Crowns and that song. It will lift you up and allow your spirit to soar. It has given me many moments of peace and release.
And Emily is gonna give me coffee.
