So, I failed, but...

I realized that I cannot do a post a day with my infant.  As soon as I finish my coffee and Bible study, he is ready to do another activity, and if I don't get a post written in the morning then all is lost.  Carson's top teeth are still coming in and he got his 6 month shots on Tuesday, so it has been a little fussy around here. (Hopefully, I'll get his 6 month post up before he turns 7month!)  Today is March 1st, and it is GORGEOUS!  There is supposed to be a high of 75 degrees with a light breeze.  Ahhh...  I'm sitting here with the windows open with the breeze and the sun pouring through.  This is quite the contrast to yesterday's thunderstorms.  It feels like Spring is finally here! Well, hopefully here to stay.  Spring is like my "New Year."  I never make New Year's resolutions because it just feels like nothing really changes from December 31st to January 1st.  No, I don't want to vow to exercise more when I still have my sweaters to hide the holiday gluttony, or do I want to challenge myself in a new way because I still have the Winter blues.  Spring brings new life.  I can see it and I can feel it!  The blooms of the trees and flowers.  The birds I heard two days ago outside my window.  It's the season of Lent, of sacrifice and discipline...and then Easter! Glorious Easter, when we celebrate Jesus defeating death and reconciling us to our God!  How changed my life would be if I lived every day as an Easter celebration!  My challenge for myself for tomorrow and the next day is to live as a redeemed woman- even if there are thunderstorms (literally or figuratively) I can rejoice:)
