Monday Mini-Sermon

Spring is here, a time of waiting, of expectation...

Spring is here, a time of…
preparing new ground
planting new plants
nurturing new seedlings
tending new shoots
protecting new buds

A time of…
clearing out the old
throwing away the tarnished
discarding the wasted
emptying out the junk
chucking out the crap

A time of…
dreaming new dreams
thinking new thoughts
making new plans
growing new goals
welcoming new hope

A time of…
holding tight the fragile
embracing the vulnerable
nurturing the young
becoming aware of the potential
longing for summer

Time to recommit, to begin again the
work… the rest of winter is over…
the glory of summer is just beginning.
