The vernal equinox reminds us that the seasons are in constant motion, time for a change.
The clouds of spring water the earth which blossoms with new life.
Like the seasons, the flowers break into our world and then pass away, as do all things.
Even fading beauty uplifts the heart and delights the eye, giving hope that always there will be something that arises even from the dead of winter.
The scents, sounds and sights of spring may draw our minds to Paradise, yet there, since fruit was in season and in abundance, it must have been more like an eternal summer or fall.
Here, we can praise God for beauty springs eternal, as does hope.
