After a long, cold Winter, Spring brings forth new life from frozen land. Birds populate the now budding trees, and the air takes on a scent of life.
Along with Fall, Spring is one of my favorite seasons. I feel a very strong connection with nature and the seasons. Every year, I dread the return of Winters because it’s like my body goes through a near death cycle, just like the land around me. Things of cheer and beauty fade away and I go into a dark, cold, slump for several months. Then, when it seems there is no hope for beauty or joy in life, Spring comes and both the world and I come back to life.
Hope rises with the blades of new grass, clearer vision comes with more hours of sunlight, and new found energy bursts as the buds on the trees do. Hello world! I’m alive!
To celebrate Spring, I’d like to share with you some of my favorite quotes about this wonderful season. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring.
Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
~Doug Larson quotes
Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
~Rainer Maria Rilke
In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.
Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”
