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.
