Reflecting on the month of April
April 15, 2009
How challenged we are to believe, to hope in what lies ahead in the month of April!
April, the month of transition:
- gray-brown earth, gray skies sending out rainy messages
- roadways trimmed in quite deep sand
- auto hubcaps marking an obstacle course
- and litter that if finally more visible with the melting of snowbanks
We are called to renew:
- faith that the street sweepers will sweep
- the litter bugs will work in reverse motion
- the Morris Dancers with song and dance will awaken the seeds and prompt the ground to release them
- flowering snow drops will appear in the woods
- lily-of-the-valley is unlikely
- the Creator’s call and tender care will rouse in us renewed reason to love again.
