'False Spring'

Day begins.  I make coffee and put the animals out.  I notice, however, that, as soon as I open the door, the weather, once again, IS BEAUTIFUL!  Hmmm...

Vestiges of spring-
many weeks early, though!
You will hear not one complain
as, temperatures, they grow!
And sunlight--it is hidden by
nothing but blooming trees!
And, oh so welcome is the gentle
and the warming breeze!

The snow--for it has disappeared...
the rain--it waits away.
Though many birds residing near
are singing all the day!
A song so very wonderful,
so healing and so real;
a song to actively affect
the very way we feel!

A temporary break
from winter's yearly take!
Enjoy each moment now!
For it will change somehow!
And we will PRAY for change,
for God to rearrange
soon enough, you know?
HIS order--it will flow!

I think John Wayne, in the last movie he ever made, referred to this as 'a false spring.'  I've been in this world long enough to know that, when a day as beautiful and unseasonal as today happens, it doesn't last long.  'Reality' may be waiting just around the corner, so enjoy all that you can!
