When it seems that evil has triumphed over good, or when the joy of life has fled, take heart. Spring is the harbinger of hope. Just as during the cold, gripping days of winter we can listen deep within us for the sweet minstrel of the coming springtime, so also we can choose to cultivate in our pining spirits an illimitable hope. Reach out, dear friend, for a consciousness of the tender love flowing to you from God. As the Spring is victorious over Winter, so good shall prove to be victorious over evil, and joy over sorrow.
