Every Season

Now that V is back in town, I'm able to use her computer on occasion. Can't say 'I'm back!' but I hope to be around more often than I was!  :)
Much love,

It's March 8th today and in
 Chicago that typically means there are four more months of winter. ;). But today is absolutely beautiful. The sky is bright blue, the sun is beaming and the birds are chirping their little birdie hearts out. My heart is full. 

As God does, I was reminded of a song today I hadn't heard in years. It's a celebration of hope, renewal and rebirth. I'm reminded that out of death comes new life, that I will always be a work in progress so that I am stretched and so that I can grow. Yet, in the ultimate plan of The Creator, I am already whole and complete. What a beautiful reminder, my little bird heart sings...

I hope you enjoy this song. (Don't mind the cheezy video).  :)


Every evening sky, an invitation 
To trace the patterned stars 
And early in July, a celebration 
For freedom that is ours 
And I notice You 
In children’s games 
In those who watch them from the shade 
Every drop of sun is full of fun and wonder 
You are summer 

And even when the trees have just surrendered 
To the harvest time 
Forfeiting their leaves in late September 
And sending us inside 
Still I notice You when change begins 
And I am braced for colder winds 
I will offer thanks for what has been and is to come 
You are autumn 

And everything in time and under heaven 
Finally falls asleep 
Wrapped in blankets white, all creation 
Shivers underneath 
And still I notice you 
When branches crack 
And in my breath on frosted glass 
Even now in death, You open doors for life to enter 
You are winter 

And everything that’s new has bravely surfaced 
Teaching us to breathe 
What was frozen through is newly purposed 
Turning all things green 
So it is with You 
And how You make me new 
With every season’s change 
And so it will be 
As You are re-creating me 
Summer, autumn, winter, spring
