Springtime 🌼❤️

C MacCuibh

Springtime!
Your message of hope
to a world tiring of winter’s starkness,
longing for that first crocus
to push through snow’s icy blanket
and spread its leaves, 
like arms outstretched, 
to its creator.
Springtime!
Our yearly reminder, if we needed one,
that to a world that was dark and cold,
a world devoid of love’s sweet warmth,
you sent your Son
to break through sin’s icy blanket,
and, arms outstretched
on a cross,
he brought us
hope.
Thank you


A sleeping world emerges to new possibilities,
weakening winter's icy grip, 
and birdsong and bleating lamb
announce to all the promise
that in due season
creation bursts into life.
And whilst leaves that fell in winter
lie upon the ground,
soon to feed the earth,
in nature's wondrous cycle
of death and rebirth,
within the tree is a stirring of new growth.


There is real wisdom, Lord, in the adage
'It is always Springtime in the heart that loves God.' 
Springtime is a season of optimism and hope,
and the Christian lives a faith centred on hope. 
Winter, with its cold and dark days has gone, 
just as Good Friday has passed to Easter and beyond. 
We live a resurrection life
reflected in the new life springing up around us. 
Thank you, Lord, for the hope that you bring, 
the renewal that you bring, 
both to this world and to our hearts and lives.

 



For the cycle of life
which brings death and rebirth
A. We rejoice in the promise of Spring

For lengthening days
and sunlight's warmth upon the soil
A. We rejoice in the promise of Spring

For a snowdrop's beauty
reflecting its Creator's artistry
A. We rejoice in the promise of Spring

For new born lambs
their joy and exuberance
A. We rejoice in the promise of Spring

for all of creation
and the majesty of its Creator
A. We rejoice in the promise of Spring
