Spring of Life

It seems almost unbelievable that while the northeastern portion of the country is experiencing (possibly) record snowfall and sub-zero temperatures, we here in the mountain west have spring-like weather and sunshine....We can't be naive as we know more snow is likely in March and April (and needed!) But for now, enjoy the weather and a springy poem ...
The water that I will give 
         will become in you a spring of water 
         gushing up to eternal life.
                           —John 4.14

O Love, thou spring of life,
well up in me.
Gush up from deep within,
receiving, glad, and overflowing,
giving life, the breath of God
that mortal life nor heart cannot contain,
life rooted deep beneath the earth,
above the stars.
Run deep, pure water of your grace,
pure flow of living energy,
that I may flow with love
each day, each breath.
O Love, thou spring of life,
well up in me.

Steve Garnaas-Holmes
