Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Spring is Officially Here

It's just barely above freezing today. It's raining. The wind is blowing. And my husband is packing up to go fishing for the weekend. That means that despite the temperature, the whistling wind, the pounding rain, it is officially spring. Because he only fishes in the spring. He's going fishing; therefore, it is spring. Just ask him.

I have a husband who will travel to the edges of the world for an annual pool tournament, despite weather or cries from wife, so I know where you are coming from.

In Iowa, it is 45* and the sun is shining.

I hope you have quilty plans for the weekend. Sometimes it's nice having a day or two without the 'guys'.

Be blessed!

Yes, it is spring. With the time change, my husband's weekly Thursday afternoon golf tournament has started; therefore, it is spring. Aren't we lucky to have husbands so in tune to the seasons.

Too funny. My daugther is playing softball. First game ever to be played while it was snowing. Oh well, you're right. It's softball season. It must be spring.

I am so glad to know that is it finally springtime. I love fishing too. Right now all I hear in my house is turkey calls. Turkey season opens March 21st!

my 2 brothers refer to the seasons as fishing, hunting, scouting, camping (of course, with more fishing and hunting in there too).

Ahhh, great logic! I just love spring. It is so full of hope! (and apparently fish!)

Sounds like a man-thing to me.

Yep, spring is here. 80° one day and 26° the next.
I've been very behind in my blog reading and working on catching up - I LOVE the pictures in your house and seeing how you display things. I love your work and the ways that you use it. Good ideas here . . .
And..you do live in such a beautiful place - the picture looking out the window is wonderful.

I like to fish too but not until it is warmer.

Ha! I know my husband would love to be out fishing with your husband today! It's cold here too, it's been in the 30's all week which is unusually cold for us in the Pacific NW. But it had been sunny up until today. Right now it's pouring rain, so maybe it's warmer outside, I haven't been out yet.
Off to have breakfast and knit a little this morning.
Thanks for your comment about my grandmother on my blog...yes, I am happy to have some pictures of her, they are precious! just wish I could have known her!

I'm with him! I can never get anyone to take me fishing around here. I have a problem driving more than about 35 mi and the trout stream is 75 mi away. I fish at a resort and I should just rent a cottage for a few days - I can drive that far in one day and return on another. We have lots of bass fishing around here, but I can't be in the sun, so I prefer standing in a shady, cool, rushing stream - the Illinois River. Oh, it is Spring!

You can't reason with a husband or a toddler.
