Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

Spring, when will you be back?...

Our cold weather is back! "Spring" lasted two days, although it's not technically spring until March 21st.

I LOVE spring, the smell of spring, the perfumes of the flowers filling the gentle breezes, the days you spend gardening in the warm sun, the children laughing and playing in the yard, and the birds chattering and chirping at sunrise...but snow is headed our way. Spring will just have to come a little later.

Have you ever notice that you seem to get more done when the weather is springlike? I get excited about the arrival of the warm weather, I can't wait to get up in the morning. During the wintertime and cold weather, I don't even want to get out of bed! I think there is a connection there.

Springtime is a renewal for me. I get more done, I have more ambition to clean house. I guess that's why they call it "Spring Cleaning".

Isn't it hillarious that last week we had the windows open, and now there is snow blowing across the yard? It's like God reminding us that he is really in charge and we are not promised anything- tomorrow, an easy road, or even sunshine when we expect it! ;)
