Hello spring!

Spring fascinates me. Always has. Autumn too. How all things fauna and flora shut down for winter at the appointed time and then know just when to wake up. Every time I see those bare trees and brown, ‘dead’ grass, I have to remind myself that they’re not really dead, just asleep. They sure look dead, though. Yet they’re not. If you wait long enough, or look closely enough at just the right time, you’ll notice those teeny, tiny buds sprouting, traces of brand new, bright green blades fighting their way through the drab, brown grass. One day you’ll wake up and everything’s green, sprouting and budding again. All accomplished behind the scenes by an unseen hand, while you were asleep.

Reminds me of the way God works in our lives. Sometimes when everything appears to be dead or dying, just when you’re thinking: that’s it – it’s over, then you go to sleep and wake up and see that it’s not over, but it’s just about to begin.

Thank God for new beginnings. Thank God for seasons. Thank God for spring!
