transformation 17 March 2014

pack trip July 2007 082

Mountain trails change from tree-filled to tree-line to tundra as you hike up in altitude, and the seasons bring changes that can feel just as gradual or just as swift depending on the day. March always feels like a time of transformation, but I’m not sure why. I’m itching to get out in the field in a tractor and help get the land ready to plant. I’m considering and reconsidering what to plant around our home and for a vegetable garden. The red winged black birds are back and the cheat grass is coming up. We’re slowly fixing fence when we catch a warm day to prepare to turn the heifers out on pasture. Skunks and badgers are showing their faces. I can feel the change around me and it seems to be calling me to follow. I wonder what blessings God has in mind.
