I have seen the spring

I was walking down the street the other day when I was taken aback by an exciting sight. It was a red-breasted robin, and it is the harbinger of spring. The weather has warmed, and the snow is melted and gone, but weather can be treacherous. For example, there is a snow fall likely to come this weekend during the freshwind conference. But the presence of the robin says "don't be fooled by a random snow storm. Spring is truly here, and this flitty brown thing with the spot of red is your sure sign."

I like the spring. Bit muddy, but it kicks winter's ass for certain.

it was great to see you jake. I have a question for ya - is there any place I can get my hands on a copy of "holy, holy God?" my youth group loved that song, and I'd love to do it here.

I saw a robin about a month ago, stopped in my tracks, and started talking to it in a high-pitched, reserved-for-babies-and-other-things-I-really-love, until I realized that I might've looked a little odd.

But I didn't care. I love robins.
