There's a Little Green

Saturday, March 16, 2013

I once heard a song called: There's a Little Green in everything | Winter is over, welcome the Spring. (Music K-8) Everything in my Atlantic Canada area was beginning to look spring-like: most of the front and back lawns were free of snow; you could walk without thinking: "When will I slip?" Then 18 hours of a clinging, wet snow fell, clouding the air with an eerie haze. And 10 cm (4 in) more is expected on Tuesday, a day before the official start of Spring 2013. What does that say about the arrival of Spring?

The starlings who over-wintered know what it means. The nitrogen-rich downpour drenches the soil with nourishment and prepares it for a season of new beginnings and renewal. Unnecessary elements are washed away and bird families gather nest materials in anticipation of the birth of their young ones. No matter how little is there, a little green shows through.

Are human beings equally in awe of the capacity for renewal that is within them? Why be side-tracked with a temporary blanket of discouragement, plateaus, setbacks? Look for the bud on the tree twig of Spring. This tender shoot of life is welcoming you to contribute to the family and community of life, of purpose, of renewal - a little green in everything.
