"What a springtime pickup this is! The author's comments on a daily Bible verse are often spiced by an appropriate quote or a meaningful observation from Huisjen's own life experience. Directions: simply read, meditate, and you will grow."
--Phyllis Van Andel, Retired Educator
From the Author
There's something about spring that never ceases to grab me right at the heart. And I love the way the four seasons of each year correspond to the seasons of life--most especially the Christian life.
I love living (hope you do too!); the gift of life is so amazing, isn't it? But I'll have to say that as I get a little older I'm starting to get really curious about the new heavens and the new earth. The concept that the renewed earth, our home for eternity, may be right here "on location"--a place of beauty and culture and vocation and education and companionship and, of course, praise and worship--is so much more exciting to me than the notion of bouncing on clouds I somehow grew up with. And the prospect of continuity and correspondence to our present home makes the uniqueness of each season that much more meaningful!
I hope some of my thoughts and enthusiasm resonate with you as you read!
