Spring and Change

Our local area in Virginia had the coldest winter in 20 years. We just returned from a mission trip in Hanford CA, where the winter was the warmest in years but also very dry. But Spring changes things, because the elegant and perfect orbit of the planet around the sun, the rotation of the earth, and the axis that points to an almost constant place in the celestial sphere, Spring brings air flow changes on the surface of the middle northern latitudes. The winds pick up; the fronts are typically rapid. The air column is frequently unstable. Fluctuating temperatures are more dynamic than other times during the year. Cloud cover changes rapidly.

About rolandlinda3

We avidly enjoy the observation of God's creation in terms of stars, the moon, and earthly things. We teach others to observe what He has made. Part of the outreach and work is to maintain a site: www.christworksministries.org [or use the new address www.cwm4him.org]. This site has been changed to include this blog along with three other inspirational blogs. We invite you to take a look and follow us there. Whether here or at the new site, our purpose is unchanged. We aim to share the love of Jesus Christ, who has graciously kept us and made us excited about seeing what he has made. Our faith is a walking faith, so faith and works, as much as we are able, are married together.
