watching, reading, and writing stories


on March 15, 2018

I haven’t had anything I really want to write about this week, probably because it’s Spring Break here in Texas and I’m ready to just take a break. But I like being consistent with these blog posts, so why not write about the Top 5 Things about Spring in Texas?

5. The time change. Now I know some people don’t like the time change, and I actually agree with you. I’d be alright with getting rid of it all together. Getting up early on the first Sunday is especially hard. But I love how the days just seem longer after the time change has happened. Like suddenly we have an extra hour of sunlight and it just feels like we’re a huge step closer to summer.

4. And the Weather is perfect! Not too hot, not too cold, perfect for taking long walks and exploring the new growth.

3. Speaking of new growth, the Wildflowers are starting to come out! This is definitely the most beautiful part about spring. Not only do the colors give an excitement to the scenery but the smells can be amazing as well. My favorite wildflower the bluebonnet is already popping up everywhere.

2. And then there’s all the new life, whether it’s birds, butterflies, little critters, or bigger creatures. Spring starts the process all over again and I love seeing all the baby animals.

1. And the best part about Spring is Easter! And it’s not because of the chocolate and egg hunts. It’s because the hope that Easter gives us for the future is real. One day there really will be no more death and we will have eternal life with our Lord and Savior Jesus. I think ultimately this is what Spring is all about. It points us to the hope we have in Christ, that there is life after death and something amazing is coming.

So on that note, I hope you enjoy the Spring weather and if you have it, the Spring Break too.
