2010 is coming to a close and like a fierce winter making its tenacious exit, ” my 2010 seems to insist on “going out like a lion.” But, like the natural and eventual seasonal exit of winter, we must not forget that spring is always on the horizon, even it we can’t quite see it yet. And, all the divine grace and seeds we’ve planted are germinating and destined to break forth in the Spring with an abundant harvest.
Believe It and You Will See It
It is faith that reminds us of our own personal spring and it is only faith that will cause our spring to appear. And when we “believe it, we will see it.” The birds, the trees, and the plants don’t judge or doubt their winters or their springs! You see the birds flying south, the squirrels burying their acorns, and the trees willingly and without a fight allowing their leaves and fruits to be stripped from their limbs. The trees bend with the winds and in due time her blossoms return. Nature knows it is the order of things. We must be more like the lesser kingdoms.
Nothing Lasts Forever
Whether you are feeling anger or sadness, you must remember that this too shall pass. “Life is in our favor” and joy is promised and on the horizon. I leave you with this verse from Psalms: “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. ” (King James Bible)
