The Ladybug

God gave me a special gift.  His gifts come in all shapes a sizes.  This gift was small, red and had 6 legs.  February is ending very soon and winter has a little time left.  I am ready for spring.  I'm ready for warm sunny days, wildflowers and kids running around outside.  Some friends on facebook have been talking about the daffodils starting to bloom and other signs of spring.  They are in California.  Here is Montana we have a good little bit of winter left.  I have to admit a little bit of jealousy knowing that spring has started without me...

When we were out at the house project my kids came running up to me so excited to show me what they found.  They found a ladybug.  Now some people may say sooo what?  I was encouraged and reminded by God that my spring is coming.  He is faithful.  He has a spring planned for me in His time.  His ways are not my ways but He has a plan!
