Oh, what a beautiful world today. The sky is blue with clouds puffy gray. The grass is greener with each passing morn. Nature is busy being reborn.
The cherry trees all pink and white seem to shine with God’s heavenly light. Azaleas in every color are lacey and bright and make me ache to paint them just right.
The Dogwoods are blooming as if to say, “We know that Easter is on its way. We usually bloom too early but waited this year. We wanted to be sure the message was clear. He came to die to save you from sin. To wash away your transgressions and leave you cleansed.”
Their blooms bear the mark of our Savior’s pain to remind us all that for us He came.
He knew He had but a short time to stay as His mission was planned to take Him away. He tried to teach us as much as He could, how to be Christ like, honest and good.
All we can do is strive each day to follow His example and never forget to pray. We make mistakes, each and every one, but God’s work with us is never done.
He’ll not forsake us and always speaks true. We just have to trust Him to bring us through. May you each find peace in this blessed spring and all the joy that your faith can bring.
