Friday Words of Faith: Spring

I think one of my favorite things about Spring is how it symbolizes a new beginning – a new birth. Trees get fresh green leaves. Flowers make their way out of the ground filling the earth with color and fragrance. Warm sunshine on your face awakens something within you. Easter is the perfect illustration of this awakening. Because of what took place on the cross, we are able to experience a new beginning in Christ. Of course this is something we should be mindful of every day but to see it displayed throughout creation this time of year makes it that much more personal.

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature ; the old things passed away ; behold, new things have come.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Spring is right around the corner!

Literally! The first official day of Spring is this weekend! Wahoo!

And while it is literally pouring rain outside my window right now and quite chilly, the forecast for the rest of the week is sunny and in the 70s! And with that extra hour of daylight, it means lots of outdoor time at our house!

We were lucky to be gifted a swing set for Abby last week so every time she passes by the french doors in the dining room, she says “Outside!” regardless of the time of day or weather condition (we had to console a crying toddler last week because it was monsooning outside yet she thought it was the perfect time to slide).

Since our outdoor time is increasing, we have been keeping our eyes open on outdoor furniture. We’ve got a couple of plastic chairs from our apartment and while they do the job and aren’t completely ugly, we would like to upgrade a bit. We’ve got plan to put down a simple brick patio and would like some chairs to add to we can enjoy our spring and summer evenings outdoors. A grill would be a welcome addition as well!

So I’ve spent some time browsing the Chaise Lounge Store looking for ideas. They have some dreamy modern indoor options that I can picture in some swanky oceanfront villa (not necessarily my home) , their outdoor chaises gave me plenty of ideas for our backyard!

These are my favorite:
