This winter has been excessively brown

Excessively grayer than normal

Excessively colder than normal

Most humans do not welcome change. Maybe change that thickens the wallet, or change in plans that includes a smile from a friend not seen for awhile. Maybe change in the waistline that welcomes a new wardrobe.

But change with some discomfort? Or lack of brightness to it? Not usually.

Some of that gray and cold sunk in on me in the past few weeks. I have felt it thoroughly. It has been heavy.

But I am relieved to say, the sun is shining!

And heavy feelings and forced smiles have let way to new life.

And blessings and opportunities have popped up!

So a good change has settled in and is bringing life to what was feeling a little dormant. New things to be shared soon.

God is good!

Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
Song of Solomon 2:11-13

There you are, there's hope after all.
I've been taking pictures of snowdrops and hellebores.

Beautiful. And Yes, we all go through seasons of feeling dormant, but like the trees & plants, we too will come to Bloom again! :)

When my cousins come to visit during the winter time... they are from up north where everything looks grey and barren during the winter.... they say that they get "Green Overload" when they visit me. We have tons of EverGreen Trees.
