Between Time And Eternity

Last night there was still a lingering remnant of light in the sky at 7:00 PM. Spring is here; Spring is coming.

Today, I went outside and took the long way to go to my second class because it was finally warm. Spring is here; Spring is coming.

The days are slowly getting warmer and longer. Spring is here; Spring is coming.

Soon I’ll be able to go on my daily wander around the neighborhood without my feet freezing. Spring is here; Spring is coming.

Soon I’ll be able to bring my bird outside and show him that the world is bigger than our kitchen. Spring is here; Spring is coming.

The snow is finally melting and the first patches of grass are appearing. Spring is here; Spring is coming.

Things will start growing.

The icecream shop down the street will open and we’ll go there when it’s still too cold for icecream.

In May we’ll open the pool, even though it’ll be too cold to swim.

We prepare for Summer because Spring is here; Spring is coming.

My dad will order seeds for when it’s time to plant them, and every year our garden grows. Spring is here; Spring is coming.

We are now between things. It’s been a long winter.

This is the time of careful steps; of love; of touch and sunlight: and Grace is found in the cracks between Time and Eternity–the spaces where there is found suspended disbelief and miracles and hope

The Kingdom is here; the Kingdom is coming.

Because in my world guinea pigs can fly!
