Everything feels possible in the Spring. Hope and life start sprouting up everywhere, and even our hearts feel ready for something new. If any season were perfect for Easter's grace to come to humanity, it is now. 


Why after spring,
after being quickened and taught to sing,
knowing He has taken our death and made us green and growing,
why would we go back to winter
so willingly,
and drop so soon our little leaves and stems and fine new fruit
with so much promise,
as if the sun had never shone upon us,
living water never washed our skin?
Why do we hide again our heads and bury deep our souls
in the killing frost of sin?

Turning away from the source of life is about as senseless it would be to try going back to Winter after May is here. But however weary we are, however many times we have failed, however cold and hardened we have become against the light's grace, Christ will not leave us there. He is stronger even than the sun, more faithful than the seasons. Alleluia.

"If anyone is in Christ, He is a new creation. The old things have passed away; behold, new things have come." 2 Cor 5: 17

"If we are not faithful, He remains faithful, because He cannot be false to Himself." 2 Timothy 2:13
