Spring is the season of year, which represents renewal, growth, rebirth, new beginnings, and enterprises, people fall in love. Religious festivals at this time of year such as Mothering Sunday, or Mother's Day, Passover, Ressurection or Easter, Penticost.
There are the familiar sweets available, such as Easter eggs. I have always wondered why in the middle of the New Year, the shops are stocking up with Easter Eggs and each year the eggs seem to be more elaborate.
From church, last Sunday, my daughter and I went out and we saw an Easter egg for £70.00, but of course, it was made from the finest chocolate, organic and it looked very nice and I wondered if I would spend £70.00 on an Easter egg, I don't think so, too much money and I would definitely spend that money on a new handbag or shoes and good luck to the person who does.
One thing, being with God, any time, day, can be your season, so you don't have to wait until March 21st, to be renewed.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Psalm 92:12 -14
The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God
They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing.
And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones; and thou shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
So with these promises, we can still make corrects, learn for our mistakes and if we are teachable, be the very best we can and be successful in whatever we put our minds to.
