Winter was the hardest season for me here in LA. A lot of times my life felt like winter during January and February. Darker, cooped up, lonelier, colder, grey, but seeing buds of flowers on warmer days. Now it is spring! Hallelujah, praise the Lord! Glory glory! Plants are growing, snow is melting, and beaches are filling up with people! I think God must have designed most places in the world to have seasons, so that people would understand the seasons of their hearts better. After winter there usually comes a spring, and after a fall there will most likely be a winter at some point, even if it is just a cold snap. What a beautiful thing!
"Came the spring, with all its splendor, all its birds and all its blossoms,
all its flowers and leaves and grasses."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
