I love spring time. It is my favorite season.
What are my favorite things about spring? New growth, renewal, things becoming green again, the Masters golf tournament, March Madness, Easter, …
What I like most about spring is that it brings an end to a difficult spell, winter! While this past winter was incredibly mild, it is nice to get it behind us, to put it in our rearview mirror.
Spring can show us a lot about life.
New growth and renewal – what new things do you want to work on this spring – maybe it is not something new, maybe it is starting something over again. Spring is a great time to do it. Maybe you want to start jogging – or learn to golf – or read more – or go for walks … get going!
Moving past something difficult – Perhaps you have gone through a difficult season of life. Now is a great time to make the decision to move forward. Make that decision. Get help if you need it. Very few people can live in the winter season 12 months of the year. It is the same when life is hard. You can’t stay in “winter” all year. Move into “spring”. Seek to move past that hurt or loss.
I know I need to get back on the exercise wagon. It is hard to believe I did a half-marathon just over five months ago. While I don’t need to train for a half-marathon (or maybe I do), I do need to get more active than I have been this past winter. I also want to read more – and learn some new things.
I also plan to sharpen some skills these next six weeks. I will take some additional coach training in Des Moines in a couple weeks. I also will attend a conference in Atlanta to help me be a better communicator at the end of April. I am very much looking forward to these opportunities!
Now, if we could only add football to the spring, then things could be perfect!
What do you want to work on this spring? What does God want you to work on?
