Happy First Day of Spring!
I read this post this morning about the equinox and how it symbolizes birth and new beginnings. I love that.
"During Winter, darkness wins the day. The vernal equinox marks the time where light and dark are in balance and bears the promise that light will overcome darkness. In the spiritual sense, we emerge from our own darkness and into the renewal and hope of light. Darkness shouldn't be viewed as a negative thing, though. Much insight is gained through darkness; the light affords us opportunity for growth and change. We emerge from a period of deep introspection, the seeds of which are prepared to sprout in fertile soil."
It reminds me of one of my favorite scriptures; Alma chapter 5 verse 26:
"And now behold, I say unto you my brethren, if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now?"
