May is one of my favorite months. Spring is such a gift. Everything feels fresh, new and possible. Like the world is blanketed in white-eyelet fabric. And God has set out a picnic basket - just for the two of you.

"For behold, the winter is past,

The rain is over and gone.

The flowers have already appeared in the land;

The time has arrived for pruning the vines,

And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.

The fig tree has ripened its figs,

And the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance.

Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come along!' "

~ Song 2:11-13 (NASB)

So arise and enjoy your day.
