Spring is here! The first sight of white and pink azaleas blooming at church made my heart leap with great gratefulness to our Lord God.
Memories of me strolling across the seminary campus in gentle breezes on a sunny Spring morning came back quickly. I was but a seminary student then. Yet, even when I had almost nothing at the time, He had already wanted me to taste the bliss of one whose God is the LORD. He spoke his love in those breezes. I knew it. I felt it. I rejoiced over it. I was simply grateful.
And now, it’s Spring again. Finding myself surrounded by the buoyant beauty of His creation, I’m reminded that I’m loved, I’m blessed. I’m not my own, I’m His — this Spring, once again.
