Realities - Lots of things on my mind

Spring. . .

It's one of my favorite seasons. If you can even call it that in this age we're in. Winters are usually not really cold here, spring is beautiful but short-lived, summer is exasperating with the heat, and fall can't be enjoyed for all the misery of the bugs, heat, and rain it brings. (I actually use to be an optimist.) I've honestly been thinking lately that the next season was summer. Ha! Brain-fog can do a number on you.


So, I bought lots of seeds to start, plant, and apparently save this year. I've been so excited to plant these seeds and actually started thinking it might be too late to plant some of the flower seeds I bought. I know the Zinnias, marigolds and such will eventually bloom - but I'm pretty sure bulbs and perennials should have already been planted back in the fall. Here I am clutching the seeds, dreaming of beautiful flower gardens, and reality struck a few days ago that it might be too late to plant them. I have seeds for the most gorgeous snapdragon called Apple Blossom. . .

 
I think I'll plant just a few of the seed and see how it goes, and save the rest until fall. You have to have a back-up plan. You can't just throw your hands up in the air, can you? You have to think critically, which is something I have trouble doing at times.

So I've gotten in a bit of a blue mood lately. . .There's all sorts of things or reasons, but I've gotta pick myself up, dust myself off, and don't let let them get me down. I could name all those things and or reasons, and such but what good would that do other than reinforce a blue mood. It would reinforce that they have power over me. And I'm not letting that happen.

So. . .This feels good having an outlet for talking out some of my problems. You definitely don't want to hear all of them. And I really do know better than to do that:

Proverbs 18:21(KJV): Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

It's so easy in weakness to give in to this.
