Lent 22 ~ Spring is Starting!


Let us know, let us strive to know the LORD;
as certain as the dawn is His coming,
and His judgment shines forth like the light of day!
He will come to us like the rain,
like spring rain that waters the earth.   ~   Hosea 6: 3


          Spring is starting! I know it. I know it differently from the still quiet of the morning, rinsed and blessed by new rains. Before this, my knowing was of hope. Today, it is of certainty. Joy tingles my fingertips. To the physical eye, little has changed from the old hours. Yet, my spirit is curled in the delight of knowing the secret whispered among angels,

Spring is starting!

          Suddenly too, emerges a desire, gentle yet sharp, to get my ‘house’ in order.

To clean,

to remove

To rebuild,

to restore.

Spring is starting!








  1. Beautifully spoken…your words stir my heart to dream new dreams. Thank you! The Lord is indeed good to those who wait upon Him. Our ‘waiting time’ as we cling hope upon hope in our Heavenly Father brings forth a watershed of joy. We too, are rinsed clean and fresh like a brand new day. Yes, let us rejoice as spring breaks forth around us, and most importantly, in our hearts!

  2. God is the giver of hope to us all. As we seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus in this world, doing the work the Father has given each of us to do, may we rejoice that we do have hope. As scripture reminds us the gifts of the kingdom are already ours in Christ Jesus. Through Him the broken are blessed; through Him we are the children of God.Galatians 5: 22-23: “But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” How blessed for us to know true love, true joy, true peace! John 14: 27:” My peace I leave with you. I do not give as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid.”
