Yesterday, Lord, we went to church
in pouring rain
and came out into sleet and snow.
March is going out like a lion.
It’s time for spring, Lord.
We look forward to April
and flowers in the garden.
Some gardens already
have purple crocuses blooming.
Lord, give us insight into your ways,
as we turn our soggy garden
into an instrument of praise.
Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord; his appearing is as sure as the dawn; he will come to us like the showers, like spring rains that water the earth.
Hymn: There shall be Showers of Blessing
