As you already know, I love spring: the blossoms, the spring rains, the freshness of the air, and the puffy white clouds. BUT, there is nothing like that special green of spring, is there? The last images in our minds before fall settles in are the dried browns of scorched grass or the dark, weary greens of summer. These greens look tired and depressed. Weathered. Then the grasses go dormant, and the trees drop their leaves in relief and settle into the well deserved sleep of winter.
However, come spring, these same trees and grasses wake up revitalized and that glorious light green of spring explodes. I can’t think of anything more uplifting and encouraging and beautiful.
As we enjoy these fleeting weeks of spring, take in that deep breath of fresh air and an eyeful of the most beautiful green, and remember that God’s mercies are just like that. Cleansing, refreshing, uplifting, encouraging and new––every morning.
