 It’s *spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!  ~Mark Twain
  
Don’t you love that after every Winter there comes a Spring? 
  
There’s only one thing that gets me through Winter. Seriously. Not Hot Chocolate. Not Christmas. Not cozy fires or freshly fallen snow.
  
It’s the promise of SPRING. 

That’s what Spring is to me – God’s promise. It’s His rainbow in the sky, promising me that gray and dreary days will NOT last forever. That Hope IS on the way. Literally and figuratively.


No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. – Hal Borland
  
Spring is the future I count on when life gets cold. When fun ceases to happen and reality bites.
  
Spring is what my heart hopes for. And counts on. Always. Spring is HOPE.
   
Keep your eyes open…Spring is coming for you too. Hope is just around the corner. The trees are about to burst into bloom!
   
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life. 
Proverbs 13:12, ESV 
  
REALLY RELATING 
What is your favorite season of the year, and why?
*This is the poem that made the phrase “spring fever” famous J.
