Spring Tonic

“Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” – Proverbs 16:23-25

I don’t know about you but after this winter I’m feeling in need of a spring tonic; a big spoonful of comfort.  A custom-made batch mixed up by the best alchemist around would do wonders to sow the heart. Here’s some of what I’d like to see go in it –

  1. Warm weather hovering around 77 – 80. No more, no less. That’s where I like it the best.
  2. A good long stretch of clear blue skies.
  3. Time to walk and ponder life and all it’s ups and downs til my heart is content.
  4. Water to wade or swim in nearly matching or exceeding the air temperature.
  5. A clear head to finish a difficult writing project. It excites me with possibilities.

Ordinarily “more time with my immediate family” would be#1 on this list. Over the winter this request has been nearly  fulfilled even though the time has hardly been all fun and games.  Hard choices, loss and heart break have been present. There have also been times filled with laughter and a closer knitting together of relationships making the time valuable. I’m grateful for that.

How are you fairing after this season filled with extreme atmospheric fluctuations? What do you need to restore your soul after a long, dark winter?
