It’s spring fever.
That’s what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it
you want …oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache you want it so! _Mark Twain
On Friday, March 20, at 6:45 p.m. EDT, we welcome the official arrival of spring and the Vernal Equinox for 2015. This is the moment in the Northern Hemisphere when the Sun crosses the equator and the days and nights are equal in hours. Vernal translates to “new” and “fresh,” and equinox derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night). Regardless of what the weather is doing outside (there are still snowdrifts piled high in many areas!), this day is the official start of the spring season.
On another note…this spring arrives with a total solar blackout. For the first time since November 3, 2013, the Moon will completely cover the disk of the Sun on March 20, resulting in a total solar eclipse.
I’m wondering if it is coincidental that the equinox and a total eclipse will arrive together, or if they represent a sign of
The Coming of the Son of Man
Luke 21: 25 “There will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men fainting from fear and expectation of what is coming on the inhabited earth. For the powers of heaven will be shaken.
Yes, dear hearts, this spring brings with it a longing for…oh, I don’t quite know what it is Ido want, but it just fairly makes my heart ache, I want it so! Maranantha! (Come, Lord Jesus!)
