All Things New

By Renaissance Girl
 
Every day now there is a new flower open, or news buds on the trees. Birds are putting the finishing touches on their nests and baby rabbits are already appearing. It seems this year, perhaps due to our long, cold winter, the Resurrection itself was the catalyst for Spring and new life — as if the earth, unable to contain Christ, couldn’t contain itself and exploded into growth and color. I looked out over a nearby orchard with fruit trees covered in pink and white blossoms and thought of the verse from Revelation, “Behold, I make all things new.” And I feel hopeful that the God who loves to create beauty — new EVERY day — will draw new life out of me.

About Renaissance Girl

I moved to the Community with my family in 1988 when I was 10 - which gives away my current age! I am now a solemnly professed member - I work at Paraclete Press, the publishing arm of the Community and I love my job! I also sing in the choir Gloriæ Dei Cantores, and am a member of Elements Theatre Company and Spirit of America Band. As a Docent for the Church of the Transfiguration, I get to discover new things about the church every time I share it with someone else. When I'm not doing one of those activities, I love to spend time with my dog or my "extended family". There's a lot of variety in my life which keeps me energized - and I'm learning how to be more in the moment so whether I'm at a rehearsal, or making dinner in the kitchen with 5 girls, they all get 100% of me!
