Spring has flourished this week. The natural world has awoken and is stretching out its limbs in all its glory. Walking anywhere is an absolute treat as colours are splashed all over the place, crying out for our attention.
As I walked through my neighbour the other day, I wondered if humans were a little like nature. Some of us are quick to bloom and to grow–to take the risk of opening up early, knowing that has consequences. Others of us unfurl our true beauty later, waiting for our moment be in the spotlight. Sometimes, we wait to be seen, quietly like a crocus popping up in the wildest places. Other times, we set the world ablaze with our joy.
I love this time of year. The fragrant smells, the luscious splashes of colour, the heat on my skin, and the chirping birds all beg my soul to stop and rejoice to be alive. This is Glory in fine garments; God has decorated the earth extravagantly. Praise be to the Creator!
What catches your senses most about spring?
What would you compare yourself to in the natural world?
Like an artist, the Creator experiments with colour and sound, adding a little of this, and more of that until a MasterPiece is complete. We stand back and relish the outcome, ever grateful for the exhibition. Amen.
