As spring approaches, I have mixed feelings. The new
season means another chapter of my life has closed
without my beloved being in it, and a new one is starting
without him. That does make me sad. However, on the
other end of my thinking, spring always reminds me of
new life. The daffodils are blooming, the grass is
turning green and there are buds on the trees.
I saw a butterfly today and three robins. That butterfly
had to go through a transformation to become as beautiful
as it is. My husband has also gone through a transformation.
He left his old “cocoon” behind and he is now transformed
into a new, flawless body. He too has “sprung” forth.
Like the lifeless plants and trees will soon show new beautiful
life, if I could see Phil, he too would show new vibrant life.
Our loved ones that have known Christ, are now more
more alive than ever before. I hope as you watch our
earth start to show forth its beauty once again, you will
allow it to fill you renewed hope and joy that your loved one
is also enjoying his new surroundings and life. “In thy
presence is fullness of joy ..” Psalm 16:11 Let’s start spring
rejoicing in this truth!
