God’s Promise of Spring

Colorado’s March weather shifts between wet snows and steadily warming days of sunshine.

Geese pass through, robins arrive in their wake, and green appears at the margin of road and sidewalk. Icicles patter good-bye and flowers replace their captured light. Gray days give way to the approaching season.

I’m reminded of God’s faithfulness and press into His promise of Spring in our hearts and circumstances.

Hope stirs below the horizon.

His light strengthens,

tips over the rim of the morning

And I rise up to sing.

The moon keeps track of the seasons,

the sun is in charge of each day.

Oh, let me sing to God all my life long,

sing hymns to my God as long as I live!

Ps. 104:19, 33  The Message


Multitude Monday

This Lenten season is a time to focus our internal search. It is a time to seek again what God has said about our calling. How should we go about our lives “while it is still day?” What are the things in us that need crucifixion? What attitudes should we nourish while we work at the daily chores of life?

What should we let fall away?

On this Multitude Monday we stop to be thankful, stoop to be raptured by His grace.

The beginning of a new week, a fresh month of transition

The gift of time

Light, filling air and sky, flooding through the glass

Cell phones, bringing news from far away

Friends to share life with

Sons and daughters and things to learn from them

New recipes and food to make them

Growth through the hard places

Writing friends, shared words

Fresh snow, crystalline light

Spring coming

Clocks ticking, reminder to seize the day
