To everything there is a season.
~ Ecclesiastes 3:1 ~
The coming of spring is the time of year when the earth calls to me. I pull on a pair of gardening gloves, collect my spade and trowel from the shed and set out to prepare my flowerbeds for a fresh season of growth.
It isn’t easy. Removing winter’s abuse is a grueling job. But to feel the cool, clean soil in my hands once again, to smell its rich aroma, to plant something in the barren earth brings with it a deep satisfaction that only gardeners understand.
Turning winter into spring, cold into warmth and barrenness into beauty is a testament to the awesome power of God. It is evidence that winter is but a season. It, too, will pass.
Are you in a winter season? Take heart. There will come a day when the cold winds will cease, the snow will melt, and the world will burst forth into a magnificent and glorious spring. The best part is nothing can stop it.
