Spring came, Spring left, and now it seems to be returning again. I did say that it was a fickle season and this past couple of weeks proved my point. A week ago Monday it was 70 degrees, this Monday we had a snow-fall of about 5 inches, wet, heavy stuff. Today there is hardly any trace left of that 5 inches. "Hope for the best. Expect the worst. Life is a play. We're unrehearsed." ~ Mel Brooks That about sums up Spring around here. I did manage to find a robin or two during the snowstorm, sitting on the rose bushes in the backyard, patiently waiting for the snow to stop.
Now we are back to this.....
Linking up to Theresa's Good Fences
I volunteered to take pictures of the animals at our Humane Society, thinking I would go a couple of times a week. But after further discussion, I think they want someone that can come practically every day. I don't know if I want to be that committed to a volunteer undertaking. They did say they needed photographers for their events, which is a consideration. I was so excited about the possibility of being around animals and photographing them, but it's just a might much for me to commit oneself to. I know my limits.
We have been studying Joanna Weaver's "Having a Mary Spirit" in Bible Study. This last week we focused on forgiving others. Sometimes we have been hurt and the person responsible isn't even aware of the hurt. Many times we carry this burden of hurt and don't want to forgive. I found this quote today and thought it was so appropriate for letting go.... "Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life." ~ Joan Lunden Isn't that just perfect. And I also found this on Pinterest and decided to add it to an Arizona image of mine.
Yes, we can count on God and his love for healing old wounds and help us to forgive. Who wants to carry around old hurts, not me.
Until next time.....
