I know, you’re ready for the pollen to go away. But isn’t it a beautiful time of year.
Did you catch the equinox?
It occurred on Monday, March 20. You can even check out the exact time. Four times every year we know the dates for the precise movement of the sun, or to say it more accurately, the earth’s rotation around the sun. Two are called “solstice” because the mark shortest and longest days of the year. We call them the first day of winter and summer.
The equinox describes a day of equal daylight and dark as the sun crosses the equator. We call those the first day of Spring and Fall.
They were planned by God on the fourth day of creation.
And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, (Genesis 1:14 ESV)
The world God made for us is not a world of chaos. It is a world of order and design by our Creator.
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
2 Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.
(Psalms 19:1-2 ESV)
