THERE IS SPRING
By William A. Ward
Where there are love and generosity, there is joy.
Where there are sincerity and sacrifice, there is friendship.
Where there are harmony and simplicity, there is beauty.
Where there are prayer and forgiveness, there is peace.
Where there are moderation and patience, there is wisdom.
Where there are conflicts and crises, there is opportunity.
Where there are wonder and adventure, there is growth.
Where there are adoration and confession, there is worship.
Where there are compassion and concern, there is God.
Where there are faith and hope, there is spring.
I like to think that once you’ve made it through February, the worst is over and spring is just around the corner. I know it will come again, Spring really is just a few weeks away now. I’ve been counting and it’s 21 days till Spring.
Just for fun I put a couple of bouquets of artificial Daffodils in my flower box on the front porch and now they are all covered with snow. Mountains of snow have appeared everywhere and in most cases they are the old ones that have been there for awhile with some new snow on top.
Soon March will be here and things will start changing in our part of the world. Yes, we do sometimes get our heaviest snows in March, but they are not the lasting kind. The snow melts and little by little we’ll see signs of life returning.
Hang in there every one! It is Super Saturday, the day I try to get things done around my house. I hope your day is a Super one too!
