Today the sun rose at 6:42am and will set at 5:25pm. Not only are the days getting longer—they are increasing at a faster pace as we approach the spring equinox. Right about now the birds are starting to sing again, the sun is sharing more warmth as it rises higher in the sky, and the beginnings of spring are stirring under a deep blanket of snow.
Pretty soon winter will loosen its firm grip on the process of growth and seeds, roots, animals and insects will begin to break free of their trance. Lambs, calves, and kids are being born and the hope of life and abundance is renewed.
