Lent 5

Sing a song of praise
for the wonder of being
for the triumph of standing firm against the wind
for the dizzying pattern of a snowflake's fall

Whisper a song in prayer
for those who are cold
for the unknown cause of ambulance sirens
for the sun to break through the darkness of winter's depression

Sing a song of hope
for the spring that will come
for the miracle of a snowy blanket fading to vibrant green
for the renewed energy and activity inspired by warmer weather

Repeat a song of praise
for the One who can do all things
who knows the design of a snowflake and dances with the wind
who gives us being and teases our senses with the turning of seasons
