For those of you who haven’t noticed the enormous amounts of candy, bunnies and baskets on display at the stores lately, you might not know that Easter is right around the corner. In fact, yesterday was Palm Sunday, which marks the beginning of Easter week on the Christian calendar. This week for me has always been a source of joy. As a child, it meant candy and a week off from school. As I grew older, it meant warmer weather and was one step closer to summer. As a church-going adult, it serves as a renewal of faith and a reminder of Christ’s death and resurrection so we may live with Him in Eternity.
The budding trees and blooming flowers this time of year are reminders to many of us that He lives. Though winter’s cold had stripped them away, spring’s warmth and sunshine return them to us.
“Well pleaseth me the sweet time of Easter
That maketh the leaf and the flower come out.” – Bertran de Born
