The sun is shining on the Granville Cottage and the temperature is going to be over 50 degrees today! The snow is melting into little rivulets and running away. Holly has been driving around with her sunroof open. Hazard is straining at his lead. Saturday the boys rolled the basketball goal out into the drive. The neighborhood is coming out of hibernation. The church house was nearly full yesterday. (We still have a whole section of the balcony that I call left field bleachers to fill). We are Michigan people so we know we could still get slammed with winter weather, but for now we are blissful as the birds and singing the praises of spring. Sunday morning just before church Bessie Bass told me they had crocuses coming up through the snow in their backyard in Rockwood. She said it with a smile on her face and a gleam in her eye. Hope springs eternal in the human breast.
We have ordered 10,000 invitation cards. The people of Evangel will use them to invite friends to visit on Resurrection Sunday. We are praying that the balcony will be full and that it doesn’t snow. Hey Hazard wants out. I gotta’ run.
Spring is springing up through the snow. God promised different seasons. He can always be trusted. I’m with you we need to let go and let God fill the left field in our balcony. Tell the people “Come and See.”
