For Springtime

Loving, Creator God, 

Spring reminds me it’s
never too late to start over.
That there’s been quiet growth
over these long months
of winter when I saw nothing. 
When I was called to believe
there was growth happening 
beneath hard, cold soil.

And now? Glory!

I celebrate the loveliness
of all you’ve made.
The newness, Lord,
the freshness — 
it inspires my soul.

Tulips in the front yard,
buds on the trees, 
the voices of birds, 
the cleansing of rain,
the comfort of sunshine….
Each gift renews me,
speaking of the promise within
all those months of dormancy
and preparation.

As spring awakens my physical senses,
I ask, God, for you to awaken my inner senses.

May my mind open and blossom
to the longings you’ve placed within me….
to the steps and path that will
satisfy the desires of my heart….
to the hopes and passions
you’ve planted in every
one of your children. 

May I seek what will truly fulfill them.
May I journey toward their Source.
May I be guarded by your gentle and wise Spirit. 

It is never too late to be
what you call me to be.
Even as it takes the greatest courage
and the deepest humility.

With your help, I will open myself to
what I never expected before,
never experienced before,
and never thought possible.   Amen.

“You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy. 
Psalm 16:11a
