As the world around us thaws and blossoms, new truths about God catch our attention in everyday ways.
Giver of life, I see you in the earth you so lovingly made;
the earth that mirrors the gospel of life, death, and resurrection.
Thank you for this most special season of spring,
when I am reminded of your promise that death is not the end
and nothing lasts forever.
Grant me the grace to believe that though seasons of harsh winter
and hardship last for awhile, they do not last forever.
As the world around me re-enlivens,
may I cling to the promise that so too will my soul.
If conditions allow, sit or take a walk outside and observe the changes brought by spring. Let your observation be a prayer that points your soul back to resurrection.
