Although spring has officially been the season for about five to six weeks, most of that time has been wet and dark. 

The last few days, though, have been spectacular in sun, brightness and hints at the summer to come.

Finally the trees covered in cherry and apple blossoms, cups of magnolia flowers, dogwood flowers and buds of roses are able to emerge without fear that the rains will take them away before their full beauty can be revealed.

As humans we too begin to bloom, shedding our sweaters, jackets and long pants. We expose our arms, our legs, our smiles more frequently.

Spring is just so good.

It is so good, because it is fresh, because we have lived months in it’s absence. We have looked up to a moody, grey sky, for the winter months, as it sent us precipitation in it’s many forms.

Job 11:16 tells us, “You will forget your misery; it will be like water flowing away.”

I find it difficult to imagine forgetting misery, yet, I have already forgotten the dark skies and constant rains that have been replace with sunshine and warmer temperatures these last few days.

Thank-you, God, for the joy that comes in the morning after a long night.
