Gilt in Spring’s Gold

"All
that
is sweet, delightful, and amiable in this world, in the serenity of the
air, the fineness of seasons, the joy of light, the melody of sounds,
the beauty of colors, the fragrance of smells, the splendor our
precious stones, is nothing else but Heaven breaking through the veil
of this world, manifesting itself in such a degr
ee and darting forth in
such variety so much of its own

   William Law

Chers Amis,

Spring has gilt the garden in her fairy gold and all is fresh and full of hope.  The winter rains have wooed the Lily of the Valley out of hiding. Hearts of valiant hosta greet me flanked by banks of ferns yet unfurled.  Waves of  nodding violets, uninvited, beam beneath the dogwood canopy.  "We live!" is the chorus heard. "God is good," my grateful reply.
–Marjorie
