Winter seems to take its toll on my spirit. The lack of sunshine and the cold is hard to bear at times. Lately, I have been feeling encouraged. The clouds have disappeared and the sun is staying out longer. I get to see the most wonderful sunsets from my kitchen window. I look at the sky and give thanks. What beauty! Yesterday, I saw some flowers peaking their tiny heads above ground and was greatly encouraged. Before long we will be able to be outside more and enjoy the fresh air. Come on spring, you are welcome.
