Spring Awakening

       message yes I can       
For some reason,
this season has felt like the winter
that would never end.
That is the mystery and the blessing
of this earthly realm of contrasts.
After so many cold, grey, and rainy days,
how precious are the sunbreaks!
We need variety to keep us on our toes.
Pain is Life’s messenger,
and suffering gets our attention.
Healing makes us grateful.

I believe there is a Grand Design,
and that the Loving and Benevolent Presence
back of All Creation
has a Good reason for why things are the way they are.
I may not yet understand,
and I certainly haven’t yet learned
to love everything as it is.
But I have faith that in due season,
all will be revealed.
