Birth=New Life

Our family just celebrated the birth of a great grandson who just happened to be born on my husband’s birthday!  It was a joyous occasion that we continue to savior as we celebrate this new life.

Little Theodore’s birth gave me a chance to pause and think about new life.  I realized it is not necessary to wait for a birth to celebrate life.  God is forever putting opportunities to see new life in front of me.  Just last week while in Denver, gazing out over 8 inches of freshly fallen snow, I was amazed to see a hummingbird flying in and out of a snowball bush that was drooping low with the weight of the snow.  This creature of God was busy keeping himself alive and giving me the pleasure of witnessing it.

I am reminded of the passage from Psalm 92, “For you make me jubilant, Lord, by your deeds; at the works of your hands I shout for joy.”  Theo’s birth makes me shout for joy and witnessing the hummingbird made me jubilant; my intention in this season of Easter is to look for God’s deeds and works so joy is mine and I’m able to shout!
