The days grow longer ~
New Life emerges
from the dark of winter’s cold
and silent tomb.
My heart begins to sing
among the flowers
bright and fair.
All sorrow is turned
into a Joyful Song.

One of my all time favorite sermons. If you’ve never heard it,
I invite you to listen. If you have heard it, I know you’ll want to hear it once again. Thank you, Andy, for posting it.
Blessing of Palms
can be heard coming
from a long way off.
its steady way
up the road
blooms in the throats
springs from the hearts
tumbles from the mouths
of children. Continue reading
There is a mildness in the air ~
A softness in the soil;
And there is less of weariness
In struggle and in toil.
The sun is somewhat warmer now ~
The sky a brighter blue;
And something seems to tell the heart
That life is fresh and new.
It must be time for spring again ~
And time to look around;
For greener grass and flowers fair
To decorate the ground.
The snow and ice have disappeared
Where now the rivers flow;
And fertile fields are stirring in
Their eagerness to grow.
The soul is filled with faith and hope
And joy in everything;
It must be time to live again
I must be really spring.
~ James J. Metcalfe

I speak to you from the depths of your being.
Hear me saying soothing words of Peace, assuring you of My Love.
Do not listen to voices of accusation, for they are not from Me.
I speak to you in love-tones, lifting you up.
My Spirit convicts cleanly, without crushing words of shame.
Let the Spirit take charge of your mind, combing out tangles of deception.
Be transformed by the truth that I live within you.
The Light of My Presence is shining upon you, in benedictions of Peace.
Let My Light shine in you; don’t dim it with worries or fears.
Holiness is letting Me live through you.
Since I dwell in you, you are fully equipped to be holy.
Pause before responding to people or situations,
giving My Spirit space to act through you.
Hasty words and actions leave no room for Me . . .
I want to inhabit all your moments – gracing your thoughts, word, and behavior.

The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come.”
