That wonderful time of year when creation wakes from winter’s slumber. Cold gives way to warm breezes. The earth nudges sleeping seeds awake and pushes them up filling the land with bright flowers and green grass. It’s all a reminder that there is newness of life.
I am amazed at how the Lord reminds us about Himself if we but look. His story is played out every year when the death of winter gives way to the new life of spring and creation reminds us of the Good News. ~ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Even though trees look as if they are dead in the throes of winter, we know differently. The same is true for those of us who know Him. Even though our flesh may die, we know that there is a resurrection. Eternal life has been won for us on the cross and by the proof of the empty tomb. Jesus, the first born of the dead, won eternal life for all who believe in Him.
Spring ~ Newness of life is all around. Look. See. And understand. Even though the world appears to be in chaos and craziness, take heart and know that the Lord has made provision. He knows. He sees. And He has left His witness in the earth to remind us that we shall not perish but have everlasting life.
Take time this year and be in awe at His work to create new life in us.

April Fool’s Date Patricia Pacjac Carroll Elle Frazier grimaced. Once again, she was a bridesmaid walking. To add to her rotten mood, she was supposed to be writing the Great American Novel.
