I am much more at peace, now that the colors have begun to spring forth everywhere. This winter seemed a hard one for me. Last year I enjoyed looking for the different shades of brown, yellow, and rusts in the drabness of winter. This year I struggled to get out side in the temperatures at all.

How thankful I am for the spring. New color brings with it new life. And as the quote says, the tiny bits of color, the tiny details of each living thing - are not just details - but they are the whole. Without details then ... is there nothing? Is this just a play on words?

God created each one of us full of uniqueness, each in our own way. The sometimes tiny parts of us and sometimes bigger parts of us are what make us different, and what make us the same.

It is comforting to know that God knows everything about us. He knows our successes and our struggles. Who better to go in those hard times, than our Creator?

(*These azaleas are planted around the public library in my town.)

Spring, with all it's bright colors, is a welcome sight to all of us! Our Creator amazes me every day when I see the intricate details of His creations!

We can never exhaust getting to know each detail of who our awesome God truly is! To me that means we need each other to share the details, each one of us having a unique perspective, in order to learn more and more about the whole Being. As His Word says, we all only know in part. Like you, I'm thriving on the newness of spring. The larch tree in front of our building finally has it's fabulous green coat on again! Yeah!

Glad you are finally getting some spring, Valerie. George talked to his daughter yesterday --and she also (she's from near Buffalo also) was happy about the sunshine and better weather.

Have a great day/week.
