Could it be that there is a crack in the ice? A few days
ago we had a flock of hundreds (maybe a thousand even)
blackbirds descend on our farm. They stayed in the yard
and field for several hours and then moved on.
Later that day, after they were gone, I walked outside
and I could still hear them off in the woods or perhaps
in a neighbor's field.
Life is there, beneath the surface, ready to burst out
as soon as she is given the start signal. First, though,
she must have the warmth of the sun to awaken her to
Even so we were dead and it is only God Himself who
awakens us to life and leads us on into the summer of
His eternal presence.
