Perhaps it was last week’s daylight savings, or perhaps the abundance of scurrying prairie dogs spying their shadows; whatever the reason, spring seems to have arrived early here in Montana.
The frozen pond behind our house has thawed. The birds have returned and are chirping incessantly.
It reminds me of my all-time favorite song, my heartbeat song, Lover’s Concerto by The Toys:
How gentle is the rain
that falls softly on the meadow?
Birds, high up in the trees,
serenade the clouds with their melodies…
Spring is the time for fresh air, long walks, short-sleeved hoodies, and petting baby critters…
It will likely snow again, but I’m determined to enjoy these present days that the Lord has made.
