Celebrate Easter

Easter Eggs
Traditions, Easter egg hunts. I imagine we’ll always have them as long as we have kids home or visiting. Never too old to find and hide eggs. Yet Easter is so much more than chocolate, sweets, and games.

Family time- a great time to spend outdoors together, work on that garden, laugh and play, visit, share a feast, dance, celebrate life, living.

Spring-green grass, ducklings, flowers, warmer weather, storms, winds and lightening followed by sunshine, tree blossoms followed by green leaves, asparagus and strawberries.

I’ve been watching spring happen, wonderful to see what new things sprout each day, is that plant still alive? will it make it? A reminder of what the holiday is about, what we are celebrating. New life, resurrection!

John 3:16

“16 ¶For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Take time and give thanks to God for the gift of his son. Honor that gift by following his example.

Easter Morning

This week has been amazing, trees everywhere have decided to bloom, sprout leaves. Green everywhere. I couldn’t resist visiting out land, hoping I’d find some dogwood trees. I’ve always wanted dogwood trees, ever since I was little. If there weren’t any on my land, I’d plant some. Searching through the woods we found some. 🙂

Dogwoods have a legend which tie them to Christ, and they are often in bloom on Easter.

To me, it is the new life all around which reminds me of Christ and his love for all, how we too may be resurrected.

No matter your religion, go outside, breath in the fresh air, enjoy nature, meditate. Life is good!
