|(Early in the Morning) Winter visits us one last time.|
Today we are experiencing the remnants of winter trying desperately to hold on for few days longer. It seems to say, “I don’t want to go, it is so nice here and I will miss Minnesota so much!” Spring though is urging it on by gently bringing the sun into view more each day and allowing the flowers and trees to slowly nudge winter to its summer home in the northland. There winter must wait for its time to reappear once again. In the meantime summer and fall must make their appearances here as well. For everything there is a season, and for change sometimes though not wanted, must come to make room for the newness of life and the beginnings of rebirth.

Anne then asked Will if he ever stopped to smell a flower? Will responded with an enthusiastic “yes, I have.” She continued by saying that the aroma of flowers are so very nice when walking by them sometimes, that it makes us want to stop and smell their fragrance. Anne then spoke to Will about the Apostle Paul in what he said in 2 Corinthians 2:13 that “we are to be a sweet fragrance to those who are being saved and those who are perishing.” She went on to say to Will that like the flowers that smell so sweet, we by our actions of love and kindness make others ask themselves the question, “what makes this person so nice?” Anne finished by saying to Will that our greatest witness sometimes is by who we are inside and not always what we say to people. Others see those changes that Jesus has made within us and are drawn to us because they want what we possess in our hearts.
