Yesterday we noticed these pretty yellow flowers outside our building as we were leaving to go out. I can’t even begin to tell you how happy this sight made us feel. Why? Well, this means that spring is on it’s way and soon we will be facing warmer days and sunny skies. Today the weather was so pleasant that we didn’t need our winter coats before or after church. It was wonderful!
The trees are all still brown and lifeless, but these flowers mean that spring is not too far away, and soon everything will burst into colour! Even though we escaped from China for a month between January and February, it has still been a long winter. The pollution was awful and the temperatures were low, so overall it was pretty miserable-looking around here! The blues skies and clear days that are starting to make an appearance make all things seem EVEN BETTER!
We can’t wait to see green grass, colourful blossoms, and pretty trees.
Bring on Spring!
