This is the time of year, it seems, when most of us get "Spring Fever." We can't wait to get out in our yards and gardens and clean up all the leaves and plants turned brown by winter frost.
Even on the "bright-blue-sky-and-sunshiny-days" we are sometimes blessed with in January, we know in our hearts that it's too early. Winter's not over yet ... we still have February and March to feel its presence.
I recently came across this poem written by poet Albert Laighton, and it kind of puts things into perspective, I think:
God sees sweet flowers growing.
So, next time you look out your window at all those leaves in your flower beds, try to be patient ... it won't be long before we, too, can "see the sweet flowers growing."
