April 1, 2011

I took a picture on the 1st of April out of complete discouragement.  In all my years of living in Minnesota, I think this has been the first winter that I am truly tired of the snow and cold.  It started in November, before Thanksgiving and as you can see from photo #1 it is not willing to surrender.  But, what a difference a week can make.

April 7, 2011

I took this picture yesterday, April 7th.  Farmer Wynn and my “Man Of The North” fertilizing fields before the rain coming on Saturday.  The snow is gone, the sun is shining and in a few days the grass will be green!  Ya!

It made me think a bit yesterday, how quickly things can transform from one state to another.  I mean winter lasted for what seemed an eternity this year and yet in one week God shifts His beautiful landscape to prepare for the new season.  He does that in our lives too.  Just when we think we will never be able to get out from under the weight we are carrying, BAM! it’s Spring.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.  If you are going through a tough place trust His timing.  It is perfect.

  1. Believe it or not we had snow yesterday in sunny California! There is enough snow in the Sierras this year that they think they will be skiing right thru July 4th!
    God always has surprises for us.

  2. Hey Marytina. I did not realize you had a blog until I saw a post on FB. I read a few of your entries and you definitely have a gift! Keep up the fun, inspiring messages. God has blessed you richly!

    1. Thank you so much Sarah for your comment and I appreciate your opinion. I am working on a book and a bible study right now and I am encouraged by what your think. Thank you!
