Spring has sprung and it again tells me what once was lost has been found. Rebirth is all around, hugging the world with its beauty.

As the birds sing I wonder, if we really would, if we really could ever love you. For your love is so vast and wide and deep. You have placed everything around us for a purpose of life giving pleasure.

And we, instead of accepting and appreciating, feel so unworthy that we walk right by.

But here we are, another year, another week after Easter, another chance to see, you have made all things new.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow, Amen.
