“Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away,
for behold, the winter is past;
the rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth,
the time of singing has come,
and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land.
The fig tree ripens its figs,
and the vines are in blossom;
they give forth fragrance."
Songs of Solomon 2:10-13
Oh Lord, what a wonderful message! So full of life and hope! It is able to penetrate our hearts and renew us!
Dear ones, there is no winter that lasts forever, just as there are no afflictions that do not pass away! As the wise man Solomon said: "Everything has its appointed time, and there is time for all purpose under heaven" Ecclesiastes 3:1
Today we receive a beautiful and inspiring message: It's time to sing! Let us rejoice and live, for spring is here! It's time for renewal. Let nothing or nobody steal the joy of the Lord in you. Let's sing a new song! Let's celebrate victory and freedom! Let's be made new and whole! May everything contrary to joy be cast out and completely expunged from our souls.
Dear Lord, let us see the sun of your victory breaking through the clouds; the desert be wet with dew; the flowers bloom with vigor and freshness, and the birds sing new songs! Let us hear your voice and be reborn with renewed vitality and strength. Help us to climb out of the darkness of cold nights into a dazzling new day.
"But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall." Malachi 4:2
I encourage you to make a new commitment to the lord. Decide to read His word daily; begin your days with Jesus, everyday, and watch Him make all things new in your life. Set goals and intentions asking Him to bless your plans and ideas. I pray the Lord give you a renewed mind and a deep desire for Him. Take this time of renewal and bloom - again-

Thank you mom, for being such a dedicated servant of Christ, and for the example of faith you show us each and every day.
