In the spring lifeless trees bear vibrant leaves, buds, flowers, and then fruit.
The sun melts Ice from around a frozen frog.
It thaws out
The blood starts circulating with a heartbeat.
Fresh water from the mountains fill the dried streams below, cleansing and refreshing them to water the life which surrounds them
The meadows are full of life with a carpet of deep green grass.
Butterflies flutter in the air.
The atmosphere is perfumed by blossoms, which color the fields.
Deer are grazing in the pasture.
Rabbits are chasing each other.
Children are playing.
Christ is the spring of our salvation, which gives life to our dead limbs and minds to bare leaves of healing and fruit of righteousness to his glory.
The Son of God shines His rays to thaw out our cold hard hearts to pump the blood of love and warmth so we can radiate like the sun.
The Holy Spirit comes from the Mountain upon High to water our souls for everlasting life.
The evergreen is the hope in the meadows where we find rest and peace.
To flutter our wings of kindness, fragrance the atmosphere with the sweet aroma of faith, and color the field with the diversity of our gifts.
We feed those around us with the grazing grass of our hope.
We catch weary souls for the Kingdom of God
that they may become as children to play in the countryside of the King.
Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords is the Spring of our Salvation.
