I think that spring is God’s way of calling on nature to remind us of the sweetness and beauty to be found in new beginnings . . .
that is, if we dare to receive them . . .
The cycle rolls ever onward;
22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” ~Genesis 8:22 ESV
We can be seized by the mundane rote disguised as the day to day.
We can drown in our legitimate sorrows and stresses.
Or . . .
. . .we can hope against hope,
lift up prayers (even for those situations and people that have been filed away in the “lost cause” pile),
submit plans (tweaked and reworked where necessary) . . .
We can try, yet another day, to begin again.
Even if that means beginning at 1.
After all, spring rains till the ground for some of summer’s most enduring blooms. . .
what I’m trying to say is,
. . . while the earth remains, there is still time to begin again. . .
So, I’m blowing the dust off of the small, black qwerty pegs as I say a prayer for discipline and grace to make a beginning once more.
What are some goals, plans, or works that you’ve set aside and need to return to? Will you join me?
