Last night at Dalit my friend Christopher led a great time of reflection about the power of God’s ability to bring about new growth and to create. Christopher opened with prayer, gave a very brief introduction to the evening and shared some testimony about the powerful signs of God’s work in the season of spring, and then invited us to join in singing some songs of praise and worship to God who is constantly seeking to recreate and bring new life.
I found myself thinking alot about creation and the rhythm of life during this last winter. In November and December as Steve returned from his Sabbatical I felt weary and tired. The cold and grey and gloomy days mirrored my spirit. However, as Christmas approached I decided to make some commitments to myself and God regarding my well being. Over the last three months now I have been working to take better care of myself and to connect with God more. As I look out my window now the grass is green, the sun is shining, flowers are beginning to emerge from the soil and trees are preparing to burst forth with life. Again I see my spirit represented by the glory of creation and I am grateful for the changing of seasons.
