Good morning! April has arrived! Here we go starting our second quarter of the year!! WOW
April - Latin word aperio which means "to open (bud)". Some say the month is named after the Greek goddess of love - Aphrodite.
In our hemisphere it most definitely the time of rebirth. Trees, flowers and weeds all start sprouting out and up. Color comes back to our world. It seems to be a time of hope and looking forward. Natures is renewing in all ways - even the birds and critters are birthing new life.
Please don't kill these plants - they are so important for our bees. We need the bees to pollinate our plants. They are gardens friends. God put these plants on earth for a reason and I doubt it was for us to kill!!!
April is a month of so many birth dates for my family. It for sure was a time for new life in many ways. It is also 2 years this month since my sweetie went to his new heavenly home. Loss for us here on earth - but a great re-birth for him.
We may not always think of all the ways re-birth happens - but there are many. Births, deaths, nature, weather, attitudes, etc.
I think April just puts people in a better mood! Everyone is ready to see things come back to life, to see color, to smell flowers and feel fresh air, to hear birds, to see the squirrels antics, soothing spring showers, soft breezes....... so many things to love.
Life is short - enjoy each and every day to your best ability. Everything can change in a fleeting moment. Put aside your complaints and grievances and celebrate LIFE. LIVE people - live wonderfully. Live fully. Enjoy the moments - as the moments are what makes it all worthwhile and beautiful.
May the month bring you joy, happiness and the spirit of love in all ways.
Hope is faith. We have hope for a new day, new beginnings, health and happiness - that my friends is FAITH.
Celebrate this day you have been gifted.
Celebrate the Savior who gave all for our lives. Celebrate His gift of promise.
May you all have a blessed month.
