Spring And The Resurrection

Magnolia blossoms on the grassI have always enjoyed the season of Spring. As I get older, I am less and less of a “winter person,” and by February and March, I’m looking at the 10-day forecast for any sign of spring breaking forth.

Spring is a great time to celebrate the resurrection, which is why Easter is celebrated now. Nature is bursting forth with newness and beauty. The winter cold, sparseness, and death gives way to warmth, abundance, and life.

The resurrection of Jesus is what brings us to this abundance and life. That Easter falls during the spring (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) is perfect symbolism for the renewal brought forth by the resurrection of the Lord.

So, everyone have a great Easter season, and an excellent spring.
