Groundhog Day

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

The world’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, at Gobbler’s Knob has been a tradition since 1886. Punxsutawney is a little over an hour north from here. Folk legend Phil’s “predictions” might be about as good as the educated weather forecasters. I’m sure that many of our readers are looking forward to spring. After all, winter is setting us up for the welcomed contrast of spring.

Behold, the winter is past … the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come (Song of Solomon 2:11-12).

Anne Bradstreet put it this way:

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant.

In all of the contrasts of spring, Father has provided us with some wonderful lessons – not the least of which is the precious picture of resurrection. After the dead of winter comes the budding life of spring. Though one day we may lie down in the cold winter of death, we shall also spring forth in the very life of our Lord – all in due season.
