Anticipation

leave a comment »

There’s a sweet sense of anticipation in the air this evening that I’ve never experienced before. This mid-March day was marvelously warm with the temperature in the low eighties…and this evening so quiet…so still…already laced with a gentle chorus of crickets and the occasional twittering of chipping sparrows settling in for the night. The bare branches of the sweet gums have a fullness to them against the paling light in the west…their leaves ready to unfurl…to begin again their discourse with the sun. It’s as if nature is whispering…that something is coming…something very good.

This evening…I’m simply content to accept the blessing, and be a fortunate witness of new beginnings…
