Happy and Blessed Easter

 

I want to wish you all a Happy and Blessed Easter Weekend.

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.”

This postcard is charming, and I like Helen Steiner Rice too; my current post has a poem of hers.
He is risen indeed.

They really knew how to design an Easter card in the Victorian times, so charming. And ditto, ditto, ditto on the words of Helen Steiner Rice. Happy Easter, Lona!

Do nas wiosna nie chce dotrzeć. Pada śnieg. Radosnych Świąt Wielkanocnych !
For spring we did not want to go. It's snowing. Happy Easter!
