Birth


It's Spring today ... the cherry blossoms are coming out of hiding.

Reflection:
John 16:20-22 (New International Version)
I tell you the truth, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.

  2. A week or so longer, the tightly closed buds were taken a while before I posted them ... though at the time I did the post they were still looking much the same.
