Welcome to Segullah


 anniekblake All that you see (2)
It’s spring in Romania, and I’m taking the train from Bucharest to Brasov to visit a friend and fellow writer. I’ve been eager to get out of the city and into the mountains, where the hills roll green and the air smells crisp. Or like sheep. People sell flowers on street corners, play violins and guitars and accordions, laugh while taking selfies. It’s that transformative time of year one feels down to her bones and in her bloodstream, a farewell to winter and warm welcome to spring, and once again we face the world with optimism. At the same time, we maybe try in vain to hold onto something we know cannot last.
In this May issue from Segullah, we present two pieces that straddle the springtime. In Julie Ransom’s “Keeping Attendance,” a treasure from the archives, we awake on a wintery morning as a “stealth snowfall has coated the world overnight . . . We are all surprised by the brightness, the beauty.” In this essay, Ransom reflects on her relationship with worship during the coldest months of the year and difficult circumstance of injury and three busy children.
We move from winter into a blossoming spring with XX’s “Jacob brings me weeds—,” wherein the author is gifted a garden of weeds and muses on the need to preserve those precious moments that are as fragile and fleeting as a beautiful but wilting weed.
These pieces contain a springtime message for us all. We hope you enjoy.
