Spring Is Coming. I Promise You That Much.

Spring is coming.

You may not believe it, though you pray for it in your bones. You may not believe it, though you sing for it with your blood.

Get ready.

River Roberts, in her article The Courage of Spring, writes,

… when I truly thought about it, I realized that spring is far from young and fragile.  It takes great courage to crack through the ice and be that first crocus that peeks through the mounds of snow.  It takes strength to be the season that promises life after death.  When Persephone returns to the world of the living, it is not just the return of warmth and abundance that we celebrate–it is the courage and power it takes to make that journey back.

I know you have it in you.
