Today was a beautiful day! As I started out to do a few errands, I noticed some patches of yellow flanked by green leaves. Right in front of me was a real sign of the new season; miniature yellow daffodils huddled in numerous groups showing off their pleasure – welcoming spring, bringing smiles of wonder to all who gazed their way.
Maybe it was their beautiful color, or their bugle heads surrounded by petals, standing tall and stoic at times, then bending a little, or a lot, that reminded me of our daily lives.
I want you to know that we were all beautifully created with kind hearts, love, passions, and dreams. And, we all can make a difference in the lives of others.
However, at the end of any given day, we all have made mistakes, some big and some small. We often carry guilt and unhappiness way longer than we should, sometimes unable to forgive ourselves.
Each morning, as we open our eyes, sit up and get out of our warm beds, the opportunities for a new beginning or so to speak a new birth is available to every one of us.
Each day, we can stand tall, bright and beautiful, or we can bend a little or a lot with guilt, and unwillingness to change. It’s up to us to choose to do what is right.
Sometimes I think the snowy, cold, long nights of winter, might have been designed to give us time to think. Then, as the first signs of a new season happen almost overnight, the feeling of a new beginning stirs with warmer temperatures, a bluer sky, buds on the trees, and the yellow of daffodils.
I believe the Man who created us uses spring as a reminder that hope is available every day. When we have confidence in our hearts, all things are possible, and love, forgiveness, and happiness abounds.
