‘For the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers are springing up and the time of the singing of birds has come. Yes, spring is here.’ Welcome to spring! It’s a season of new life! Every winter leads into spring! I can’t promise there will be no rain ….. but I can promise there will be flowers and birds singing. I can’t promise there will be no more pain ….. but I can promise a new perspective and understanding. The old adage ‘No pain ….. no gain’ ….. is so true. Everyone who has a story worth hearing has paid the price. And your story is going to make a difference in someone’s life. I pray ….. in this new season …..you will begin to see beauty instead of ashes ….. the oil of joy in place of mourning ….. and a garment of praise to replace the spirit of heaviness!
