It's Spring time again and unfortunately in Northern Indiana that doesn't always mean warm weather and sunshine. The temperamental weather has brought on a few gorgeous days mixed with plummeting temperatures, rain, wind, and even a little snow. As yet another cold front settled in this past week I couldn't help but feel disappointment from the false hope Monday's amazing weather gave me.
Thankfully the fickle weather has not kept the blossoms from flourishing! I decided to go out and get some pictures despite the chilly weather. I was reminded that no matter what life throws our way, good weather or bad, we are still able to blossom. God created beauty in and all around us and even in the worst of times we are given the opportunity to be beautiful. One of my favorite things about gardening is the ability it has to be a metaphor for life.
As we end this week (with a not so wonderful forecast) here is a Free 8x10 Printable to remind you to bloom no matter what kind of weather you are facing. To print lager than 8x10 please click here.

Let's Take a Walk Along the Beach
You see it in the sunrise.
You feel it in the breeze.
It rolls in from the ocean,
and dances in the trees.
It floods your heart
and energizes your soul.
It empowers your being
and makes you whole
Sunrise from our balcony
How Great is Our God!
The ocean magnifies the presence of God and the waves carry it directly to your feet to electrify your soul
"The best part about leaving a place is it becomes a memory--and echo from the past. And oh how in love I am with the flashbacks"
