Changing Seasons - Nanny & Butler Blog

After a false spring last week
The colder temperatures have returned
But last week was a glimpse of hope
And gave us the idea that
This winter would soon be over

Just so, Lord, after the last year
Of living through a pandemic
The thought of vaccines
Has given us a glimpse of hope
That maybe we are moving out of it

Whenever we are in a dark place
Whenever it seems that
Our personal winter has
Gone on for far too long
You give us a piece of spring

And it is this which helps us
To carry on
It is this which gives us
Hope for the future
And we thank you

We thank you for glimpses
Of possibilities
We thank you that
No matter how bad things seem
They will come to an end

As we remember that
To everything there is a season
And that seasons follow
One another
No matter what

Even if there are sometimes
More challenges
Even if there are sometimes
That season will end

And we will move into
A different season
One with its own challenges
But also one which
Is filled with joys and blessings
