Spring seems to finally want to be here
Although temperatures may not yet be in the 70s, the tulips are blooming, the trees are blossoming and have suddenly filled the branches that were mere sticks two weeks ago. Nature is such a miracle. Year after year life springs up here in April. The rose bushes show buds, the many different types of flowers in our patio are all blooming or they are about to bloom.
I wonder if our souls also awaken in the Spring. Do we put forth new branches, start to bloom, to come forth and blossom? I hope so. All creation seems to awake in April, at least in California. And I need to blossom forth, too. It is a time to spread love and joy even in the midst of this pandemic. How am I going to do that today?
