It Still Exists

The weather may change...but for right now...Spring is coming to Eastern Oregon.

And I love it.

I have my window open as I type this. The breeze is strong, as Mother Nature sweeps winter away in preparation for a new season.

Northern New England is buried under ice and several feet of snow today. There's no snow, or ice here. And the bulbs outside are already sending their green shoots up out of the ground.

This is my time of year.

No strife, no sirens, no headlines in my town today.

And I've just got to smile: Because this afternoon, God granted those of us in this corner of the world, precious hours of peace.
