"Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.” ~ Jani Ortlund

Spring Is On It's Way
I know because I have seen hundreds of snow geese on their way back north. Usually we go to a wildlife management area about an hour away, where in March the Tundra Swans, Snow Geese and Canada Geese rest on their long journey home. I have never seen them in the fields around here, but yesterday we saw quite a few.
I also know because I have daffy-down dillys coming up in my garden.
And I saw forsythia starting to bloom when we were out for tea the other day.
And it is sunny and mild but cold at night.
Yesterday Lindsay and the kids worked at clearing out the veggie garden of leaves and some plant materials etc...preparing for this year's garden.
