Spring is here in actuality. I knew it would come. It only seemed that it would not.
I read my bible and hear the promises of Jesus. “I’ll be back.” My ears seem cold
in this winter bleak world but I await the sound of His coming. Maybe a loud trumpet like
sound that rattles the world? I’m more than ready for that coming as well!
