I love the slow greening of the woodlands, barren and stark through the winter, now with every day a new gift of color or new nests or birds returning as spring days build towards Easter.
This has brought me healing often in my life. I am tolerant of the dormant feeling days in my own spirit, because experience has taught me that is only a season, not a condition. Sometimes it takes more than a single Spring to soothe my heart, But God has never failed to travel with me tenderly, reassure me consistently and send people and experiences that bring blessings beyond measure ... even on the darkest of days.
Perhaps this is why this is one of my favorite Bible verses: If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NRSV)
Whatever season of the heart is yours today, say thank you for the promises of Spring.
