Spring is early this year. I am delighted to see that yesterday’s steady, gentle rain washed away much of the dirty snow. My husband and I can now see some earth and brush beneath the trees in the woodlands that surround our home. Today it is sunny and unseasonably warm. At this pace, it won’t be long before new life bursts forth with green leaves and the first wild flowers.
Many winters ago our marriage had died a slow death from an unresolved spiritual conflict. It was spiritual, by my definition, because our hard hearts and stubborn pride fed the conflict and prevented its resolution. That spring new life came to our marriage by the washing of rebirth and the renewal of the Holy Spirit. (See Titus 3:5) You can read about the death and resurrection of our marriage by clicking the book page tab on this blog.
