“When the days are the shortest, the nights are the coldest,
The frost is the sharpest, the year is the oldest,
The sun is the weakest, the wind is the hardest,
The snow is the deepest, the skies are the darkest,
Then polish your whiskers and tidy your nest,
And dress in your richest and finest and best….
For winter has brought us the worst it can bring,
And now it will give us the promise of SPRING”
-“The Secret Staircase” by Jill Barklem-
Spring is Here
I’m so thankful we’ve made it this far. The winter has beaten and us down, but we’ve made it through. The worst is behind us now. Don’t get me wrong. There will be hard times, but all of the good days will outweigh all of the bad days.
The fresh bloom is here and we’ve got a new season to jump into. So let’s run forward in full force, pursuing the fresh work that’s blooming through the will of Jesus.
