Just a thought to help start your week.
Just one of my most favorite parts about the spring time each year is seeing the colors start to pop out everywhere. Take these roses, for example. They are fully opened and full of color.
Just a short time ago, there was no sign of life at all on the rose bushes. Then the buds began to appear, and now there are blooms where there once was nothing. There is bright vibrant life where once there was none.
I think that perfectly describes the Easter season, don’t you? No doubt, Jesus’ crucifixion and death had lowered the gloom and darkened the world for all of his faithful followers. And yet, the stone rolled away from the burial place. The light shone where there had been none. Life ‘bloomed’ where just shortly before, there had been none!
I love the spring time because it brings not only color to a drab world, but it brings life as well. We see it in the flowers, hear it in the birds’ songs, and experience it in the warming of the sunlight. Spring has sprung and life is in the air. I thank God for the life I feel today and the opportunity to share the beauty with someone. Don’t you?!
Just a thought.
