FROM THE WMF PRESIDENT
What does Spring look like in your district?
Is the cactus blooming? Are you busting out the baseball bat? tennis racket? airing up those bike tires? Is your leisure time spent watching college basketball and updating your bracket? Did you start some seeds on your back porch? Maybe you are busy spring cleaning?
Here in Montana the snow is melting, and we are seeing some signs of spring. My friends, the Brubakers, are enjoying baby calves. Malachi 4:2 says, “You shall go forth leaping like calves from the stall.” This is a joy filled memory for me from my farm girl days. One of my chores was stirring up some special “formula” for the calves and delivering it to eager, hungry tongues.
Ladies, I’m praying for you today. Life has been difficult for some of you. Instead of a spring in your step you may be trudging. I’m reminded of another scripture. This one is in Habakkuk 3:17, 18 “Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.”
We can have joy and confidence in our life because God is in control of it all, every detail. In knowing this our response should be to praise God in all things. I’m choosing joy this spring and thanking God for His faithfulness to all generations.
