The hard part of living in the long winter of this pandemic is not knowing if or when the springtime will ever come again. Yet we all want to hold onto the hope that there will be an end to this seemingly endless winter. Until the fragrance of a new spring reaches us, we must not miss the opportunity offered us during this time of being alone and apart. God can use everything for good. The challenge for us is to embrace the gift in this moment and not to put our lives on hold while we wait. We can turn to music that can heal our spirits and feed our hope allowing God to bring the springtime to our spirits.
