Marchaprilmay…Yesterday was raw, windy, raining on the final dawn of the month.
It was more like March ending than May about to begin. What is the difference between early November and this Spring morning?
Ah…can you see them almost completely hidden in the arms of these birches
and sugar maples?...
Red buds that will pop into leafy green.
The barren branches of late Autumn and Winter
will soon give us New Hampshire “Living in the Green”!
But there will be other spring surprises along the way
Isn't that the way with us on our life journey? Sometimes we struggle through deep, cold winters
that emerge into springs containing scars and scabs of what has fallen.
And yet, the greening hope in faith of new life awaits today!
