We have just finished the season of Lent for another year and Easter and the celebration of the Resurrection are past and Spring is in full bloom here in Grove America!
This is my FAVORITE season because it is a time of renewal and awakening! We are able to see new life after the long, drab days of winter! This winter seemed especially long this year. I think it was God's way of saying "Global Warming???? What global warming????"
A song that we used to sing in high school choir for competition comes to mind. It is from a hymn titled For the Beauty of the Earth and has the same title. The words are, "For the Beauty of the Earth. For the Beauty of the skies. For the love, which from our birth, over and around us lies, over and around us lies. Lord of all, to Thee we raise, this our joyful hymn of praise!"
Today, as you look around at the beauty of the earth, remember to stop and thank the Creator for the amazing creations that he put here for us to enjoy!
Happy Spring, my friends!
