April Showers Bring...Hope!
The time between winter and full-blooming spring is like being halfway between something. April brings a mix of weather and the promise of May flowers, but I think it has a more spiritual symbolism.
During April, we stand halfway between the cold, oblivion of winter and the gloriously warm days of summer. Like many whose lives have taken them to places they had not expected, April is between a rock and a hard place. But, with April comes hope!
Hope that the sun will warm the land. Hope that the flowers, trees, bushes and crops will bloom once more. Hope that Life will return to a land now gray with death.
As you venture out on these sunny April days, take time to look for the signs, the promises of Life. They are everywhere!
