Seasons: The days ARE getting longer. And we've had some really "nice" ones for this time of the year in West Michigan. Not warm, but sunny!!! Clear skies!!! Sky blue skies!!! The past few days the temperature has got up to the low to mid 30's, a heat wave after last weeks near zero wind factor...

Speaking of seasons, at work today we received word of the death of one of our colleagues who for the past several years has been battling cancer. He was a "young" guy with kids in high school. Life is short, and for some it is shorter then for others. RIP...

It is kind of paradoxical that in the grief that comes with the passing of someone you know, we are at that time of the year when you sense spring is out there somewhere, and creation is very slowly starting to stir from its winter slumber.

Spring gives us a reminder of the promise of resurrection. The thought of resurrection brings hope to the winter weary heart.

Come Lord Jesus!
