Changing Seasons

These pictures are a few weeks late in coming!  As you can see in the last picture the ice and snow are now gone!  It's been so refreshing to watch the end of winter melt into spring and hear the sounds of the returning birds and the lapping of waves on the shore.  Who but God could have created the changing seasons!
Colossians 1:16 "For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth,...all things were created by Him and for Him."

Yes Spring!

                                          Notice the geese in these next few pictures.

These pictures may not depict what we think of as a typical spring.  As you see it's late in coming here too this year.  One sure sign of spring on the river is the beginning of shipping season.  It has been fun watching them plow through the thick ice.  We have also seen and heard many spring water foul.  As always God has shown me a little bit of heaven in the beauty around me.

Sarah Young wrote this in "Jesus Calling" today:

Heaven is both present and future.  As you walk along your life-path holding My hand, you are already in touch with the essence of heaven: nearness to Me.  You can also find many hints of heaven along your pathway, because the earth is radiantly alive with My Presence.  Shimmering sunshine awakens your heart, gently reminding you of My brilliant Light.  Birds and flowers, trees and skies evoke praises to My holy Name.  Keep your eyes and ears fully open as you Journey with Me.

At the end of your life-path is an entrance to heaven.  Only I know when you will reach that destination, but I am preparing you for it each step of the way.  The absolute certainty of your heavenly home gives you Peace and Joy, to help you along your journey.  You know that you will reach your home in My perfect timing: not one moment too soon or too late.  Let the hope of heaven encourage you, as you walk along the path of Life with Me.

1 Corinthians 15:20 - 23;   Hebrews 6:19
