Season for Joy

20130324_084311

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

I wonder if God gave us seasons, especially spring to bring us hope of His renewing power.
Sometimes our lives look as bleak as the landscape in winter with dead brown grass that looks like it will never be green again. Naked trees wave their arms in stiff, winter winds. We wonder if we’ll ever see them lush again, providing welcome shade on a warm day.

Finally, winter’s frigid winds give way to spring’s glorious rain. The whole earth is pregnant with blooms. We rejoice in the abundant beauty, the fragrant scents, and the unthawing landscape.

We revel in His power to renew and revive once again.

God of all seasons,
thank You for everything You created.
So many things shout of Your goodness to us
who choose to see, and believe.
