The Author Post: Blog #23, "I Opened My Eyes to a Brand New Day"

I opened my eyes this morning to a brand new day. I could smell the fresh scent of sweet white blossoms on the Dogwood outside my open window; the breeze from my small fan on the dresser sending a pleasing aroma throughout the room. It's Spring again, finally!

There are two things I think of when I think of Spring. The fresh feeling one gets as a sense of new beginnings after a long, hard winter; warm weather, fresh air, open windows, the sound of leaves blowing in the breeze, distant sounds of lawnmowers, the smell of flowers and fresh cut grass, and most distinctly, the joyful smiles and sounds of people enjoying the outdoors. God had the perfect plan for Spring!

I also think of new birth and rebirth; a distinct time of year when we can look at our lives and regroup. It is a new time to put everything into perspective and focus more on the purpose that God created us for.

We can look back on our pasts and see how far we've come in our lives through God's protective goodness.
We can look forward to our futures and see how far God is going to bring us, through our belief and faith.
Let us look to this time of year as a chance to enhance our lives in a fresh new way; a time to search who we are in God's eyes and a time to begin stepping it we continue to faithfully look up.

God is always there to lead us to a righteous path where good and favor lie straight ahead. We just need to redirect and align our footsteps to the place where our footprints meet His, so that He can carry us to a brand new, exciting and abundant future! This is a beautiful season of passion. Enjoy life in all its glory! 

This is my 23rd Blog at The Author Post, so I thought I'd tie it into the 23rd Psalm: 1-3.
King James Version (KJV)
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness for His name's sake.
