for behold, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone
The flowers appear on the earth,
the time of pruning has come,
and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land.--Song of Solomon 2:11-12
Think of this reading in terms of the Easter miracle, NOT in terms of the weather we, currently, have in the Twin Cities!!! (SNOW!) Even though the Twins season kicked off last night, it does not feel like Spring (in weather terms!)!
