108/365... Beautiful spring day joy

Waking up to snow on the ground in the middle of April was not the perfect way to start the day. Looking at my poor wilting flower covered in frozen rain made me sad. Watching my kiddos' faces fall when they saw the snow and not sun broke my heart.

I found myself asking God, "Where is spring?".

He answered rather quickly.

By the day's end, the sun was shining. The snow had melted. The tulips were standing tall. The kids were playing outside.

It was a beautiful spring day.

Beautiful spring day joy.
