It's really here! Spring break-up is starting. I can see the dirt road again. No more ice. This means it will be dusty and for a week or two the pot holes will be really bad but it's so nice to have the warmth of spring. Each day more and more birds are returning. Pretty soon I'll be trying to go to sleep with the snow buntings chirping away into the midnight hours. I don't think they know how to sleep with the 24 hour sunlight. I'm sure they rest I've just never seen it.
Last night Andrew and I stayed up pretty late. When I went to check the locks I saw golden sun rays streaming through the door window. I opened the door to see the splendor outside. Now I can't say that the sun was setting because it won't set until August... but I can say that it looked like it wanted to. Yellow, reds, and orange light everywhere. It was so beautiful. I took a picture to share however the picture isn't as splendid as it actually was in person. Across the open tundra field, just past the electric poles is the arctic ocean. The ice pack is still there other wise you would see the sparkles of open water. Oh, such a simple thing makes my heart smile. Behold the beauty of the Lord!
