A little thought to share concerning the coming Spring...
"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." ~Anne Bradstreet
And if, by chance, you are wondering who Anne Bradstreet was:
She was a 17th century immigrant to the Americas, and is considered to be America's first poet.
Anne had abounding courage to come to a new land, overwhelming faith in God, an abundance of love for her family, and a love for poetry.
What an excellent example of a woman of faith using her talents and abilities to affect her world.
