John 3:16 (ESV)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life’.
Gracious God, as the National Trust prepare to plant blossom trees throughout the towns and cities of our nation, we give thanks and praise for the beauty of Your creation. As the first daffodils begin to bloom and we see snowdrops adorn our grass verges, we are so grateful for the promise of Spring to come, signs of new life which refresh our souls and cheer our hearts, giving us hope after the long, dark days of winter. As we continue to journey through Lent, we are reminded of the promise of life in all its fulness that we find through a relationship with Jesus Christ, a relationship that offers us light and hope wherever life’s journey takes us, and the assurance of the Love of God, now and throughout all eternity. May our hearts and minds blossom with the hope, peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
