Winter destroys and brings lifelessness. All the beautiful colors are gone.
Even the brown
leaves have disappeared. Bare limbs are all that remain. Months
pass by and labor is beginning. From the ground green sprouts emerge.
Foliage has been restored.
Fragrant flowers adorn gardens and fields. Birds sing their harmonious
songs. Fruitfulness is
springing forth all over the earth. Showers from heaven quenches the
thirsty soul. Sprayed is the soil
with radiant beams of sun. Natures
debt has now been paid. The sting
has been removed from death.
Renewed once more is the precious gift of life.
