Celebrate Spring

After months of snow and ice, overcast skies, and cold, bleak and chilling winds, it is time to celebrate the season of rebirth and resurrection.

From the darkness of the still frozen ground, tiny, fragile and colorful winter aconites, crocus and snow drops silently and defiantly emerge and announce to anyone who passes by that Spring is here.

In case you didn't notice the flowers, Canada geese in the skies above, loudly and boldly proclaim the seasons are changing.

Jesus said,
"Consider the lilies of the field. They neither spin nor weave; yet I tell you  even Solomon in all his splendor was not attired like one of these."
There is no time of the year when Jesus’ words are more meaningful. Spring is nature declaring the Glory of God and victory of life over death, hope over despair, light over darkness and joy over fear.

I invite you to celebrate the joys of spring.
