Made for another world

Spring in Cody

Yesterday was a perfectly lovely spring day, the sun was shining, birds singing. Actually the last few days have been very nice, temperatures in the high 60s. Sigh. Today it's snowing.

I know the snow won't last and it will warm up again in a few days. But March is always my hardest month away from home. I know in Georgia and even Ohio, flowers are blooming, trees are budding, robins are hopping about. Trees won't bud or flowers bloom for another six weeks and temperatures won't be consistently warm (above 60) for up to another two months in Cody.

So today, even though I'd rather have spring, I'm trying to make the best of the inside day ahead. I lit some candles, made a pot of tea and started the day with some restful music. Snow can be fun, I'll send Max out to play in it later, and I'll stay tucked in and cozy. If this is our last good snow fall I'll be thankful, but it could very well not be.

A friend recently told me how a situation was causing her to "lean into Jesus". I find this weather, this climate, the differentness of this place causes me to lean into Jesus. Hard but good.


  1. awe, Beck! I guess I can only laugh, or I would cry! I know just how you feel, I long for Spring and could NOT wait another 6 weeks. Stay warm inside and maybe you can pretend it is balmy! For just a few more weeks...

  2. Makes it feel more like Christmas again than Easter, doesn't it?

  3. Waiting for some consistent warm days here in TN too!

  4. I just stumbled upon your sweet blog. Beautiful family and you have such a great attitude...I won't spoil it by telling you where I live. :-)


I love hearing you sweet comments!
