My Own Spring Awakening

spring flowers blooming


If winter is the time for stillness and introspection, spring is the season for awakening—for stretching our legs and exploring the world. Are you taking advantage of this time of rebirth?


God of all seasons,
It’s been a winter to remember,
but I am anxious to breathe in the
smell of primrose and tulips.
I want to feel the warming sun on my skin,
and a breeze at my shoulders.
You live in all seasons—
in fact no time is foreign to you—
but it is the springtime when
you smile widest at us.
This prayer is my smile back.


If you are able, take a walk or simply sit outside in the spring sun. Close your eyes and notice the smell of the season or the chorus of songbirds. God put it there for you. Can you feel it?
