SS 2:12 Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.

Spring Blue Bonnets

After a cold, dark winter the promise of spring is so refreshing.  I enjoyed that promise this morning on my walk.  I was treated with a field of beautiful blue bonnets.  Sometimes, as we walk through our various trials of life God allows our way we feel our spirits have been in a cold, dark winter.  Sometimes it’s hard to imagine spring will ever come to our spirits.  But spring always follows winter.  It may be delayed from the melting of snow, and in our spirits, tears, but it will come.  It is the spring of refreshing of God’s Spirit in us as we shed, through confession, our sins and hurts, speak forgiveness to others and ourselves, ask forgiveness from God and accept His forgiveness.  This makes way for the “blue bonnets” of our spiritual spring.  It makes room for His love, joy and peace to flow through our spirits.  As the fruits of His Holy Spirit flow through our spirits, they will also flow out to others around us to encourage and sustain them.  Praise God for spring.  Allow spring to come within your spirit today.
