Spring Sweetness

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

My favorite Spring Sweetness of all is this picture from Easter Sunday. I cannot stop looking at my little grandson, Zeke. Would you look at that sweet face? The pink flowering dogwood, pink azalea and wisteria vine are all so beautiful this time of year - reminding me of the change of seasons. Our lives have seasons and it is my favorite analogy of womanhood. All of life is a season. I am in the season called "empty nest." But this I say...my nest is not empty...look how full my table was Easter Sunday! They come home, they go. You young wives and mothers, please enjoy your time with your husbands and your children. Trust me - it flees quickly. "Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come..." Song of Solomon 2:12 Jan

First of all, what beautiful spring pictures! Definitely made me homesick for the south!

We are missionaries in Thailand and I wanted to ask about your mission trip to South Africa that I read about on the Living Proof Ministries blog.

I'm an MK from Zimbabwe, and my husband an MK from Korea. We have three teenagers...our family loves Africa and loves soccer, and when I read about your mission trip, I couldn't help but think what a wonderful, wonderful mission opportunity!

I imagine it is for your church, and that it wouldn't be something that our family could join in on, but I just wanted to see if you had any information on how a family might could get involved next summer.

Next summer will be our last before our kids begin going to college in the U.S. and going to South Africa sounds like a wonderful, impossible dream, but I know God often does do the impossible, and thought it certainly wouldn't hurt to ask for more information.

My e-mail is pharkins@loxinfo.co.th

I always love reading what you have to say on the Living Proof Blog...reading it helps me feel connected to what God is doing in the US and I feel like it is always offers spiritual refreshment for me.

You will love South Africa...it is beautiful.

Zeke is a darlin' little bunny! I see why it's your favorite picture.

And your flower pictures - the whole earth is full of His glory!

What a wonderful gathering of people around your Easter table. As the teens get older, I take to heart the advice Jan about enjoying time with husbands and children. You bless me.

Love and hugs across the miles.

If that little guy were to find himself at a Siesta gathering, he wouldn't know what hit him! What a DOLL!

Sure would love to hug his grandmama's neck!

So, I got your email about re-posting my comment!

I think I said something about how it is encouraging that life IS seasons. And I am def. in a season of waiting right now, if you know what I mean. But, it's a sweet time with me and the Lord. Hard, but sweet! :)

And, I just love those pictures.
