Can't believe it is already 2011, and almost to the end of this first month of January too. Today the first day of the second semester of school starts for all the kids in our family. Lindsay is in 9th and Chris moved back from Indiana and is a senior, if you can believe it? We have lots of projects to finish around here and can't seem to get going on them. It has been snowing a lot since Christmas so that keeps us kind of "locked in". But February is almost here and toward the end of February the daffodils begin to bloom so in about 4 short weeks we have that to look forward to.
I am posting a picture here of my favorite flower and the flower of my birth month. I can't wait to see them blooming on the road to our church as they do anywhere from the 3rd week of February on. They kind of represent HOPE to me, as they are the promise that God is going to send springtime and warmer weather to brighten our days, just as he promises us eternal life through the sacrifice of his Son.
Hey, I learned to spell daffodil by writing this post today. lol
