It Occurred to Me Yesterday

How Quickly January Has Gone By.
I think it's an unfortunate mindset to get into, wishing time away.
"Let not our longing slay the appetite of our living" - Jim Elliot
However, I must confess, I was excited thinking about how quickly February would go by - if January did - and March is the official month in which we can get glimpses of spring which will be very forthcoming in April.  sounds like I've just wished away almost 3 months.  Not really - but I am grateful that we only have one more month of true winter.

So let's look at the possibilities March holds - by looking at these 2010 pictures, taken in mid-March.

The next ones are beginning of March 2010
and show not many changes in the trees and grass and climate
but yet not so bitter cold, either.
And haven't we already been blessed this weekend with some unseasonably mild days?

Feeling some hope and gladness  that spring and warmth always do come back to us?
It makes me excited.
