I love spring and all the sunshine and freshness it has to offer. We see the daffidils popping up and showing their pretty faces, as well as the pansies with all their bright colors. Everything is starting new after the long cold and wet winter we have had.
It is a time for us to stop and think about what is before us.
But even though all of these things are the things that we see and think of as spring and a new beginning. I know in my heart that the true "new beginning" is because of our Lord.
After all it was Jesus' death, burial and resurrection that allows that new beginning for us. This is something that we could not do for ourselves.
