First Day of Spring and Other Fallacies

March 21, 2013

Spring is here, spring is here, spring is here. I figure maybe if I use the word spring enough that maybe spring will come and warmer weather will spring forth, flowers will spring up and springs will thaw out. I just looked outside and it seems to be working.  In anticipation of  Old Man winter showing up on the first day of Spring,I was asked why I couldn’t do anything about the weather and I said that I was in sales not management. (I know it’s not original, but it’s still funny.)
I’m pretty sure that they taught us in grade two that March 21 was the first day of spring; which makes me wonder what other important stuff they misled me about.
If there is one thing I’ve learned after living in four countries on three continents is that you can’t trust the weather.  One thing I’ve learned after having served the Lord for over thirty years is that you can always trust God. He loves us, cares for us and has only our very best interests at heart. Regardless of what it’s doing outside you can always rest secure on His promises.  And that ought to add a spring to your step even if the weather doesn’t. 
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
