Anticipating Easter

Signs of new life abound here on the County Line. And I was struck by an illustration of Easter just outside my front door.

One day, the blossoms of this hyacinth were closed tight - much like Christ was laid to rest in the tomb following His crucifixion.


And yet, we anticipate Christ's victory over Death.


This hyacinth in full bloom began as a bulb. It lay under the cold ground all winter long and burst open into spring this week.


Hallelujah!

Another Hallelujah! Brent, Jill and Eric are home! And we will host Easter Sunday dinner for 15 people tomorrow after an Easter brunch and service at church. I hope your Easter plans include time with family and friends, too. Enjoy!
