Spring in my Step!
I truly felt a joy in my heart today as I went for my walk - all the signs of spring in evidence. I decided to share our bits of spring with you, and found this lovely poem to go with it!
God in the Seasons
Lord,In Spring we are reminded
of the magnificence of Your creation,
as the earth is covered in verdant green,
with splendid splashes of color,
and we witness birth everywhere,of animals bearing their young,
of buds turning into leaves and flowers
and our own moods being rebornwith renewed energy and life.
we rememberthe warmth of Your love for us
and the light of Your goodness.
Both are everywhere for those who look.
Thank You for butterflies,birds and wildlife for us to enjoy,
water to swim in,
and weather that frees us to romp and playwhile outdoor pleasures are at their peak.
we thank you for Your cooling breezes,
that bring relief from the relentless summer heat.
We see bright colors fading and dying,
leaves turning brown, crisp, disintegrating,only to be reborn next year,
reminding us that every living thing,
including us,must die in some way before being reborn.
as white snow blankets the ground,
we are reminded of Your purity and Your perfection.
The complexity and beauty of each single snowflake
only hints at Your transcendent intelligence and creativity.
We hunker down and snuggle in,
knowing this season will wind down
and Spring will reappear, as it always has
because You created an orderly, predictable universe,
not by chance,
but from your flawless design.
Thank You for the seasons,
Lord,and everything in them
that You created for our enjoyment.
