Spring Benediction

April 21, 2018

Lancia E. Smith

New beginnings need blessing to reach their potential.

No one seemed a more fitting source for blessing this publication and this effort than Rev Dr Malcolm Guite. In many ways, he has been the patron saint of this project since its beginning and indeed, all brave souls who create to give praise to their Creator.  Here receive Cultivating’s Spring Benediction!  



With each unfolding seed, with every Spring,

He breathes the rumour of his resurrection,

As birdsong calls your hidden heart to sing.

So may this season be his benediction,

To lift your love, and bid your prayer take wing,

To thaw your frozen hope, to warm your mind,

For Spring has come! Can Heaven be far behind?


~ Malcolm Guite



May we be courageous to take up our given work with joy

and enter boldly into God’s great work of restoration. 

Many blessings, friends, and may every grace be yours!
