I just love this season!!! Okay I love all seasons for different reasons but this is one of my top 2 favorites LOL. I know, I know there are only four but humor me. Spring is such a refreshing season to me. I see the flowers beginning to bloom, trees getting their leaves back, calming rain, and the smiles on the children's faces as the expectation of playing outside draws near!! What is not to love about Spring?
Personally to me this feels like a time of renewal. Perhaps is because we celebrate Lent, Palm Sunday, Holy week and Easter all during this season. We are reminded of our ultimate goal: to love and be loved. It is great to see God's glory in all He has created as flowers unfold and children continue to grow. It is wonderful to know that "He so loved the world, He gave His only Son..." John 3:16. I don't know about you but thinking about that makes me feel renewed.
As I watch Spring begin, I feel confident in the fact that my soul is being "renewed", that I too am part of God's great plan, that my children have a future far worthier then the any future they could possibly see here on this world. That in truth we are not alone but are always loved, always refreshed by God's mercy and grace.
As I feel the breeze of spring on my face while the sun shines, I can't help but feel secure in God's embrace and know that all things that are happening right now in my life are part of His plan for me and my family. So LORD please continue to mold me in your hands, continue to work in me your ways, so that someday I too can see your face.
Renew my spirit LORD as you renew earth each Spring. May God renew you as well.
