The Season of Renewal... for me it always starts with FROST

Yes it is Easter Sunday. A day when many Christians are celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus and the promise for all to be born again into a better life after death. It's supposed to be a joyous occasion. So let it be! Celebrate Easter! Celebrate Spring! Celebrate life as it is renewed this time each and every year.

(above photo was taken this morning!)

This day always reminds me of the great American poet Robert Frost's simple classic, "Nothing Gold Can Stay."

"Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leafs a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay."

What better illustration of Frost's poem than the forsythia? The one blooming outside our window is on fire with golden color, yet in two weeks it will all be gone, replaced by a reliable green color that will last til October.

Frost's message is still valid today. So I suggest we all enjoy the golden colors while we can... In every part of our lives. Nothing gold can stay!
