"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. All things came into being by Him and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being." John 1: 1-3
we finally have warmer weather and see signs of "new life,"
we can rest assured that SPRING, has really arrived. We should remember
to praise and give thanks to our great and loving God who never fails
us. Each bud, each bird, each day of blue skies and sunshine, and,
yes, each softly falling spring rain proves that God is ever present,
caring for His creations.
favorite hymn from my childhood, "All Things Bright and Beautiful,"
written by Cecil Alexander (1818-1895), shares these thoughts about
All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.
Each little flower that opens up, each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors, He made their tiny wings.
The purple headed mountains, the rivers running by,
The sunset and the morning light that brightens up the sky,
The cold winds in the wintertime, the pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits of our garden new, He made them everyone.
He gave us eyes to see them all and lips that we might tell
How Great is the Almighty God who made all things so well.
Cecil taught children
in Sunday School. She wanted to teach them about the Apostle's Creed.
The words of this song helped the children understand the phrase, "I
believe in God the Father, Maker of Heaven and Earth."
Make this spring
a time of reflection on all of God's creations. Let us express our gratitude
to Him daily for loving us enough to make us "new" in His
sight through the shed blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
