THINK SPRING - March 2, 2006

Think Green! Think Spring!

We turned the calendar page this week! Winter is winding down!

Here are several selected definitions of spring from the dictionary: to stretch or open out, to arise, an elastic quality, to recover shape after being compressed, bent or stretched.

For me, spring is when I turn the calendar page from February to March. I am in such a hurry for spring that I actually was thinking about putting away the heavy winter clothes of winter this morning.

But I know that even in April we may have snow. Can you remember a spring snow after the flowers are peeping out of the ground? I always am surprised when the flowers which were bent over by six inches of snow, bounce back and go about their business of blooming and being beautiful again.

Trees can appear devastated by ice storms, bent clear to the ground, apparently ruined. We shake off the ice and trim the injured parts. Then comes spring. With God’s healing touch, a green shower of leaves hides the hurt and after a few springs, we forget about the damage.

This is true with people too. A very few never recover, but most are like nature. They have the amazing ability to repair their hurts and disappointments. Why not? We all have the same Healer.

Have faith that we can recover from storms, whether in our personal lives or in our community. We cannot let the damage destroy us. We will bounce back!
