Life Springs Eternal

The month of May in our Northern climes, speaks of a newness of life, a freshness, a new birth a time of foaling, and lambing, heels being kicked up, a time when the young bucks ( deer), would spring through the fields, on stiff legs together, as they  “pronk” with  excitement and joy. A time to shake of the lingering cold of winter, and turn our faces expectantly towards the sun, eyes shut waiting with anticipation and hope for a ray to dazzle and infuse us with warmth. To remove, the chill in the bone, and invigorate us for the season ahead. We deeply breath in, the wonder of spring and life

In similar fashion, we have recently experienced and given thought and remembrances of our blessed Jesus’s, death and resurrection, (over the Easter period), a new resurrected life, the first fruit of the resurrection, a fulfillment of prophecy, an exacting of the word, a completion of his fathers mission for mankind. So too, we turn our faces to the son and look to the glory of our risen king. We bask in the glorious grace given to us. His new life, His newness, His freshness, and His birthing of new adventures.

We serve an amazing King who brings new life, where there has been none,a new covenant separated from the old, a resurrection of dreams and Gods promises. In and through this we are not annual festivity junkies, but know that we look to him each day, a gratitude, too deep for words to express. Personally I can only marvel, and by grace live a life befitting the sacrifice given for me. Thank you doesn’t truly express, how deep my gratitude goes. It falls short in so many aspects, all I have is what He has given me. Each day is like a “spring” day, filled with all the new, new, new, new.

Rom 5:2Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
