After a long, cold, wet winter, mother nature is finally dressing herself in the colors and textures of spring. We are seeing signs of renewed life all around us, as trees begin to leaf out and flower buds open up.
We find ourselves in the Easter season of the Church’s liturgical year, a time when we remember the resurrection of Jesus and the promise of eternal life held out to each one of us, a time of reflecting on the ways the Spirit of God brings renewal into our life.
This is a time of gratitude for blessings received and a time to be a blessing for others, a time to turn our cold, hardened winter hearts to the merciful heart which warms and enlivens.
This is a time for me to get outside with my camera, enjoy the fresh air, and document the wonder that is popping up all around us. This is a time to soak it all in, to breathe deeply, and look with wonder at the unfolding of creation taking place in front of our eyes.
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.” (Isaiah 6:3)
