Oh It looks like Spring

We've had a rather harsh winter here in southwestern Oklahoma. The snow, ice, and rain has been pretty significant. Now we move into Tornado just gets better and better.
We arrived here in 2000 and have grown to really love Oklahoma. (We missed the mountains of Utah when we first arrived on the plains.) The far horizon is amazing. What does dusk look like where you are? When we visited Bali and were almost on the equator we noticed that it was either dark or light. There didn't seem to be any dusk or dawn...12 hours each of day and night. It took us a few days to figure out why that seemed so different.
My Mother had friends who came to Florida and stayed on the beach in a beautiful hotel. She asked them one night how they liked watching the sunsets on the water? They said that it was too bad but it always happened while they watched the news. She was astounded that anything might distract folk from one of the best "shows" anywhere.
Live into awe in these coming weeks. Strive each day to find something that is exciting to your soul. Say yes to the coming of the long days and enjoy the dusk and dawn.
God abides
