I remember the long forgotten daffodil bulbs
planted last fall,
just waiting to burst forth into bloom
at the first touch of the warmth of spring,
and I smile.
Like the daffodil,
we are all waiting to burst forth
at the gentlest touch
of our beloved Creator's hand.
Stretch out Your hand, O Lord!
Bring us to new life in You!
Re-create our souls to bring glory to You alone!
