Life comes back

by

winter 2018London rarely sees snow, so yesterday and today have a magical quality with quite a good falling of powdery snow lying across most of the city. It is beautiful! It is also a reminder that winter hasn’t gone yet – the signs of spring are there but the cold has certainly returned!

The spring flowers peeping out through the snow in our garden are a good Lenten reminder. Sometimes life can get a bit buried, a bit overwhelmed and frozen – we can feel that we are in the depths of winter. These little signs of life through the frozen earth tell us that the pull of Spring is stronger – Life comes back. Lent ends in resurrection.

    Thank you for your though-provoking message, Lynne. It is fascinating reflecting on spring as we here in Melbourne begin the first day of Autumn. In recent days it has been remarkable that some of the leaves are changing colour, and the hours of daylight are diminishing. Truly, ‘To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted ….’ (Ecclesiastes: 3: 1-3)
