Easter Reflections

Easter Reflections

With OUR EYES we see
The beauty of Easter
as the earth awakens once more...
With OUR EARS we hear
The birds sing sweetly
to tell us Spring again is here...
With OUR HANDS we pick
the golden daffodils
and the fragrant hyacinths...
But only with OUR HEARTS
can we feel the MIRACLE of GOD'S LOVE
which redeems all men...
And only with OUR SOUL
can we make our 'pilgrimage to God'
and inherit His Easter Gift of ETERNAL LIFE.

“Helen Steiner Rice.”

Dear Lona, The words of Helen Steiner Rice so reflect the true meaning of Easter which, whatever an individual's belief, is what this weekend is all about.

A happy and peaceful Easter Sunday.

That's a great poem! I love Easter! I celebrate the gift of faith in what Jesus did to secure a spot in heaven for me. Also, I welcome the arrival of spring and a new season of gardening.
