A Leaf

Calendar wisdom for April 8. “Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection not in books alone, but in every leaf in the springtime. by Martin Luther In every plant, in every flower, I see the wonder of Your creation. Thank You, for the promise of Spring…the hope of new life. Amen. Unknown author” Yesterday as I sat sheltered at the end of the garage, I enjoyed the hints of coming Spring. Tomorrow we celebrate Maundy Thursday and then the crucifixion of Good Friday. We are walking into the winter of our faith.

Coming back to the USA from a country on the Equator that went from dry season to brief rains, and grass went from brown to browner, I have loved seeing the advent of Spring and marvel that trees that look like dried out sticks, start to bud and bring forth new life. How marvelous in our winter of Covid-19, we find the hope given us by the leaf, by nature, that God is present and at work, even when we can’t see Him.
