Today’s weather has not been very spring-like. We have not seen the sun at all. Even after the pouring rain ceased, the clouds and dampness never went away. There is snow on the plateau just off to the east. The day started out chilly, and it has gotten colder as the day and evening have progressed.
But this time there is something different…
The grass is greening.
The buds on the bushes are growing every day.
The fruit trees and daffodils are blooming.
The foliage on the lilies lengthens and thickens each day.
Despite this cold and nasty day, the signs of spring are everywhere. They won’t be denied. Or stunted by the cold. Even when the sun hides its face, nature keeps moving along the path to warmer weather, sunny days, and all sorts of new life.
For these and all Your gifts, Lord, we thank you.
