New Day, New Month

April. What does that mean to most people? Perhaps spring, as buds start appearing on trees and flowers start shooting up through what was frozen ground. Warmer weather. Or perhaps it means colder weather, a look to fall colors, less sunshine, the crunch of leaves under foot, frost on grass and plants, harvest. Whether springtime or fall, April brings with it a sense of oneness as temperatures around the globe are much the same. In the northern hemisphere we are coming out of the darkness of winter, when the earth rejuvenated to get ready for new life. In the southern hemisphere we are coming out of summer and getting ready for the earth to go into hibernation to rejuvenate so it can bring forth more abundantly. Whether spring or fall, it is a time of beauty as God brings forth his best for the earth. Spring and fall rain prepare the earth for the next cycle of life. It is also a new month. The fourth month of the year. Plans are being made for birthday parties, graduation parties, all kinds of celebrations important in a person's life. You will rejoice at the birth of new children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and you might experience the death of loved ones. Whatever April brings to you, enjoy it to the fullest. It is a gift from God to be enjoyed every day, every moment. Take a walk, enjoy nature, see what God is doing today and every day. I hope you have a blessed and beautiful day today wherever you live. Thanks for reading. Picture is mine

April means spring to me, I couldn't be happier that March is over.

It sure went out like a lion. Though you did have a good trip or was that in February.

@fishtiger58 Winter was a huge mixture of cold and warm, snow and rain. I've never seen a winter like it. At least not that I can recall.

Yes it does. I might not have been here much last month, but I did make payout, so I'll be looking for those green dollar signs as well.

April is a transition month in my books, feeling the full effects of spring, new birth of things outside, birds building their nests, and all of the splendor that lies outdoors for us to enjoy. Its a beautiful month.

Yes, it is a beautiful month. As much as I love winter, I do love watching the buds bloom, that fresh green before it turns to the darker shade of green for summer. It's so pretty. Then it gets hot and I want winter back.

@Juliaacv Is winter longer in Canada because you are closer to the Arctic? Or is it about the same - six months out of the year - or at least it seems that way here in Wisconsin.

Happy April to you! I cannot believe how time is flying and we are already here in April. Today seems to be a clear spring day (maybe summer, not sure as I have not gone outside yet). It's a very busy month (as any other month for us) but hopefully the weather is on our side for now.

I hope it won't be too busy for you. Take time to relax and smell the roses, or the coffee. It would be nice to see the weather straighten out.

@just4him I have 2 young kids . . . it's the school stuff and outside activities that have our schedule so crazy. I try to relax in between everything, if I can. The weather turned out to be quite pleasant today.

I think spring is my favorite then fall gets here and it's my favorite. I like spring for the green, summer for swimming, fall for its color and winter for it's starkness

The months are passing by quickly! I am very glad March is over though. Every day is one day closer to the warm weather of summer. I do not like the cold. I have not been here the past few days as much as the internet keeps going out after 7 pm. I am trying to make do with it tonight.

It means time to flip the calendar over! Time to update the checkbook. Time to plant the garden. Time to start thinking about opening the pool next month.
