The Hope of Lent - March 31st

Where man sees but withered leaves,
God sees sweet flowers growing.

Albert Laighton

Springtime burst open on us this week  as the ‘hope giver’ of renewal, rebirth, second chances and growth. ‘The Joyful Season’ of new life emerges in the midst of humility and brokenness.

New life emerges from seeds surrendering to change in fertile soul, interwoven with laments of lost attachments.

 It's a time for miracles, of wonder and especially of great hope.  We who once had no hope now have reason to be filled with gladness 

Lent signals the true meaning of the season – renewal.   It is a time for renewal of all life.

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world. 

Virgil A. Kraft

I like that statement "God says trust me and I will show you." That speaks volumes on how God wants us to trust him in all aspects of our lives. Can be difficult to do at times though, but He does always know what is best and that does give us hope.

Only recently I've been curious to figure out my reluctance to welcome Spring (and Summer).
While Winter is my all-time favorite season, I never paused to consider its residue as "drab and dirty." Still, that's what DH (in Chicago) and so many others have had to deal with.

Renewal. That's a great thought.

RENEWAL brings hope. "We who once had no hope now have reason to be filled with gladness."
