I wanted to wish all those who read my little ponderings a very Happy Easter. Whether you are of faith and this is the day remembering the risen Christ or you just enjoy this time of year as a part of the world turning toward spring, I wish you well in having a nice celebration.
Whatever your beliefs, I think Easter teaches us many things about life. There are mysteries in life which we cannot explain. There are revelations that occur to us that surprise us. We are asked to believe sometimes without proof. There are great joys given to us if we only open our hearts to them. Simple acts of love and kindness can make a dreary day shine brightly. There are messages of hope and to fear not out there, if you will only listen to them. The storms of life cannot wash us away if we build our house on a foundation of rock.
If transported back to that first Easter Sunday I think it would give me chills. Conquering death. Feeling the pain of seeing someone die to seeing them alive again. It's like dead winter plants coming back in the spring full of color and alive again.
And now "knowing" there is more to the story.
