Spring is in the air.

Go outside today, take a breather, think about life's finest things and rejoice them.  We tend to forget all the little things that make life so beautiful and think too much of the big picture.  We worry too much about all the things that are going wrong and forget all the little things that are going right.  It's the small things that create the big picture and without them, no picture can be complete.  And on the most beautiful days, no matter how busy we are with our lives, we must take advantage of the fresh air and breath it in, whether it's for an hour or for even just a second.  You'll find yourself at ease for that moment.  It's like that moment when you've been holding something in for too long and it builds up all this stress inside you.  And simply taking a second for yourself and taking in a breath of fresh air releases that feeling of stress.  We can't shelter ourselves inside too long.  There comes a time our minds can't handle it anymore and we just need to let go.  Maybe not for long, but for a moment, just forget about everything.  Just think about nature's beautiful creations, smell the flowers, listen to the flow of the river, hear the birds chirping, let the breeze take control of your hair.  It is spring after all, take advantage of this brand new fresh air.

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.  ~Virgil A. Kraft

Where man sees but withered leaves,
God sees sweet flowers growing.
