291. The more I see you, the more I find you, the more I find you, the more I love you. ~Kari Jobe

Come, gentle Spring!
Ethereal mildness!
Come.
~James Thomson

Spring is coming!  Its earliest harbingers have arrived to tell me so.  And with it, as always, comes a heightened sense of awe and wonder, a sense of such that I acquired at a very early age.  Thus I look not outside Creation nor separate from it, to find God.  The words of Romans 1:20 in Scripture intimates that “the world is a place of revelation and the whole of life is sacramental.”  So it is that Creation is enough to reveal God to humanity, but it is not enough for its salvation.  For that we need Jesus, the Messiah; He is the only one who has the ability to offer us salvation.  Thankfully, with a profession of faith that He is Lord and a penitent heart, it is ours for the asking.

“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I(Jesus) will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”  ~Matthew  11:28-30   ✝

  2. are your tulip trees already blooming? Wow! This morning it’s 22 so that has no doubt put a kink in the nice start which was underway here—at least the sun is out and bright!! I’m off to Dads, hope the knee is showing signs of improvement —we’ll chat more this evening-Hugs and love–

    • Mine is not and may not now. This one is in a neighbor’s yard. It was in full bloom and gorgeous until this morning. After last night’s hard freeze those beautiful blossoms are all dead and brown. So sad. That’s what happens here when we get that January or February unseasonable warm up. Things get tricked into blooming and then a cold snap gets them. Mine weren’t so open as these and some may have survived. I’ll just have to wait and see. It may have nipped my redbud tree as well. And then next week we have some more cold weather that will nip whatever comes out in the next couple of very warm days. Nature can be a reall stinker some times. Love and hugs, Natalie 🙂

  3. Hi Natalie,
    I wanted to let you know I received your Glory Story email. 🙂 I will be publishing it in my blog. I am a bit slow going from this illness – yet to be diagnosed. Please forgive me on that slowness. It’s been hard lately.
    I do so love your beautiful heart, your lovely blog, and the love for Christ you exude!
    Bless you,
    Heather
