This is the time of year that I just love. Flowers are blossoming, trees are filling out and for the most part, the weather is pretty good. I get to shed the weight of the winter and look forward to making plans for the summer. As I get older, I really do take time to enjoy nature. I often find myself noticing the colors of flowers and the fullness of trees.
It is that time of year, where you are in between seasons. Some days feel like summer and other days feel like early fall. But, it is beautiful to see.
Some times as I go through life, I find myself in between seasons. This used to be a place that I dreaded because I felt like I was wasting time. It did not appear that I was going any where or getting anything done. As soon as I thought it was safe to move on, the weather changes. As soon as I think it is safe to pack up the winter gear, a severe cold front comes through and completely takes me off course. Some times I still get upset when in the morning it feels one way and by the afternoon it feels another. I am either under or over dressed for the change. Ever felt like that before?
Sometimes I have to stop and remind myself that I am not responsible for the weather. It would be foolish of me to go out ill prepared for the day. If it changes while I am out, so be it. I can't stop the weather from being the weather. If I know that this time of year is unpredictable, then I should expect it and prepare for it.
So the next time you are out and the sun is shining bright, take some time to notice the pretty colors of the flowers and the fullness of the trees. If by chance while you are out and it starts to get cloudy, look up at the clouds and see what shapes you. If it starts to rain, look up to see if the sun is trying to peep through the clouds. If it is, keep looking for a rainbow. Because, the rainbow tells us that the rain is coming to an end.
Until next time
Be Blessed, Sisterfriend
