Here we are at the beginning of spring. It seems like a long time since last spring began, but also seems like such a short
The Bible talks about the seasons and how each season is important. Genesis 8:22 states "while the earth remaineth,
seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease." I guess when we get
to this time of year, we really like Song of Solomon 2:11-12: "For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come..." We are beginning to hear the singing of
the birds; flowers are appearing on the earth. I am not sure if the winter is past!!! We have had an usual warm February and
cold March. It is amazing how the seasons work, how our great God put it all in order when the earth was created by Him. We
have all seasons for a purpose.
Also, we are approaching Easter when we celebrate our Savior's death and resurrection. Every Sunday when we gather, it
is a time to celebrate our living Savior. Never take for granted what Jesus Christ did for us. He gave His life, and God gave
His all. What love was shown to lost mankind.
Even though we experienced a "little" snowfall last week and it is in the forecast again for this week, we can
rest assured God has not changed His mind about the seasons - spring is coming and we will welcome it with open arms!!
Enjoy the singing of the birds and the flowers appearing on the earth. Just a reminder that God is still in control.
