Springtime in our area is filled with moderate temperatures, warm breezes, schoolyard games and leisurely walks. But have we ever allowed our days to simply blend into one another without ever pausing to appreciate or rejoice in the beauty around us? Too often, we take God’s creation and our surroundings for granted. Sacred Scripture reminds that “this is the day the Lord has made, let us be glad and rejoice.” So, before spring fades and a sweltering summer commences, take a daily moment to rejoice in the beauty that surrounds us. From the historical monuments of D.C. to Skyline Drive, revel in the fresh air and the water that gives us life. Celebrate the dawn of each new sunrise, which offers God’s promises and possibilities, and rejoice in the gifts from Our Risen Lord!
