Living in New England, I know how unpredictable the weather can be. In fact, we’ve had four nor-easterns in the last 30 days!
As I was driving last week, I saw a home with it’s front yard covered with snow. And there, amidst the snow, daffodil buds were poking their heads through the frozen blanket of ice. I stopped to get out of my car to take a picture.
It reminded me of my life…and the many times I may feel I am in the dark…perhaps discouraged by life…or relationships…it could be anything. But after winter comes spring…after the rain comes the rainbow. And my faith is restored…I am filled with hope once more.
As I look again at the daffodil buds, I am reminded of Jesus and His death for us on the cross. As we reflect on that again during this Holy Week, may we remember the darkness Jesus entered into…so that we may have eternal life and so that we can emerge from our winter into an eternal Spring.
