Springing forth!

has arrived!!! Does that word make you as HaPpY (I'm tickled pink!!) as it makes me?!!!! Aside from the pollen that it brings, I just LOVE this season! Everything budding, blooming, vibrant with color!! I look forward to seeing my hummingbirds any day now! The swallows took up residence weeks ago in their nest and I'm hoping that the eggs will remain safe and that their numbers will grow this year!

Speaking of "growing" - our Scripture verses have been growing and I've fallen behind in posting them! YIKES! However...I have been keeping up with my memorization. I'm not sure if anyone is even doing this with me at this point because there have been no comments - I'm kinda feeling all alone in this here at ItTR! But - that's alright, because I'm doing this for ME! (But it sure would be nice to have some partners!!)

So - my last post left off at our "D" verse which was:

Devote yourself to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
Colossians 4:2

Then came our "E" verse, which I did not post. It was:

Every good and perfect gift is from above.
James 1:17

And now for our current verse - the letter "F"...

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, love and self-discipline.
1 Timothy 1:7

Cindy Bultema, the author of the *She Sparkles* blog and our A-Z Scripture Memorization leader is currently on her way to Turkey with a Day of Discovery video team to tape her Red Hot Bible Study! HOW EXCITING!!! But you know...her journey to this point has been full of twists and turns; she has been heavy on my heart and I have been in deep prayer for her! Please visit Cindy's blog to read about the weeks leading up to this trip that almost wasn't! And please, please be in prayer for her (and her sweet family!). This is such an amazing opportunity for this beautiful woman of God and oh, HOW HE WILL BE GLORIFIED AND LIFTED UP!!!
