Reflections…………………………………………………………………Spring

For behold, the winter is past: the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on earth, the time of singing has come and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree ripens its figs, and the vines are in blossom, they give forth fragrance. ………………………….. Song of Solomon: 2:11-13

The writer of the Song of Solomon makes reference to the transformation that occurs between winter and spring. I would take the passage a step forward and use the symbolism to apply to life in general. There is a transformation that has to occur as we merge from those circumstances that I refer to as the ‘Winter of Life’. As I see it:……”While in the ‘Winter of Life’ I discovered deep inside of me there was a summer”. Whether we speak from a literal transformation of ‘Winter to Spring’, the impact and behavior is the same.

The cold, gray of winter is behind and replaced by blue skies, warm days, bouquets of flowers, yards sprouting life, and trees clothed in green filled with the colors of singing birds.’ Let’s all look at Spring as new life. A new start and renewed optimism.

lf I knew the world would end tomorrow I would still plant my apple tree’

Let’s bloom where we are planted! cheers………………………………………Gary
