Bright Yellow means Rebirth

“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.” ― Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

Spring is the time for rebirth and renewal, but there are a few of us who cling to the joy of fall into winter.  It is the winding down of being outside and staying more indoors together, closer, enjoying intimate moments. I always look forward to fall and still waiting right now for those cooler nights and mornings. Texas is always late in getting there... clinging to an Indian Summer that will not release it's hold.  

We wait in anticipation for the cold fronts to come barrelling through from the northwest plunging our temps downward.  We wait to light the first fire in the fireplace and heat up that first cup of cocoa.  Are you ready?

"Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony." Colossians 3:14
