A Fresh Start

Spring (Ah-Ah-Ah-Choo), is in the air. Yeah, I know about the allergies, but other than that, I love Spring, don't you?

The trees around our home are getting their blossoms, the birds are dusting off their feathers and warming up their voices, and the Sun is getting ready for summer. Utility bills are lower because it isn't hot enough to need the air conditioner yet, and it isn't cold enough to need the heater either. Not too hot, or cold, it is just right.

The "boys of summer" are putting on their leggings and getting ready to connect the hickory with leather. (The sound of Angels clapping their hands.) Can life get any better than this?

Next month the Fish & Game department will start stocking the mountain streams in New Mexico with some hungry 'bows ready to swallow my hook. Many people start their calender year with January 1, not me, fishin' season starts April 1, (Hmmm, April fools day, a fitting day to begin fishing season) that's when my new year begins.

There is something exciting about New Beginnings. Our minds close the door on the past as we walk into the future. Paul knew the secret power in a Fresh Start. "forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13b-14)
