O God of all seasons:                                                         
                                                                               
As You warm the earth from winter to spring, warm                             
our hearts with Your love.  As You bring the bulbs                             
from the cold soil in to the fresh air, renew our                              
hearts with the breath of Your Spirit.  As You bring                           
the days of the spring break-up upon us, fracture                              
our hearts with the pain of the world around us.                               
As the seasons turn surely one into the other, let us                          
also turn surely unto You.                    Amen.
