Just a short walk from my house stands this old country church.
I took this picture last fall when the trees had lost their leaves, and the crunching sound they made underfoot reminded me that the cold and bleary days of winter would soon arrive.
We all know that, although the plants look dead and lifeless through the long winter, that they are really just "resting"...lying dormant for a time.
But as sure as there is winter, there is spring.
Life is renewed.
And every year, the earth demonstrates the message of Easter to us in the long-awaited warmth of a spring breeze, the vibrant colors and intoxicating scent of daffodils, hyacinths, and crocuses, the happy songs of the birds, and the playful buzz of the bumblebees.
To me, spring is the evidence of the promise God made to us for eternal life.
I plan to revel in that promise!
Wishing all my readers a Happy and Blessed Easter!
