I Saw Spring

                                                                     I Saw Spring


 I saw spring in November. Nodules waiting for time to pass until they would be fulfilled. Patiently they decorated the tips of their nearly bare branches.


Grandpa and I took a brief walk. He was unaware of the violet blossoming in the ground. I picked it and showed him. He smile though he could not hear me. A yellow dandelion  brightened the November ground as we meandered in the yard. Grandpa just walked on. You see, he had Alzheimer's, the disease that robbed the senses, his mind. My heart cried out, “Oh, Jesus...” knowing the despair and sorrow the illness brought.


                                                  Yet in the depths of anguish of my heart

                                                                 I saw spring in the fall.

                                                                  My God understood.


Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you. I Peter 5:7 (Living Bible Paraphrased)
