Spring Returns

Spring returns again and

not a moment too soon.

My frigid heart was

reduced by winter's grip,

Laid dull and dormant,

sluggish under the surface,

sleeping like a crocus

awaiting the light of spring.

Lord, thank you for Your sunshine

that penetrates the crusty earth,

awakening the fragile flowers,

bidding them to come alive.

Lord, empower my heart as well

and brush off the wintry spell,

expand my life with renewed vigor

and let me reflect Your glory.

  1. how I am longing for spring, for signs of life in the ground. Most of the countryside is still under a blanket of snow. I don't ever remember it lasting this long.......

    It is affecting my mind, I can relate to your post. I am in a 'wintry spell' and it isn't fun!
