With OUR EYES we see
The beauty of Easter as the earth awakens once more...
With OUR EARS we hear
The birds sing sweetlyto 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
What does Easter mean for us?
It’s about remembering where we’ve been, and finding the courage to continue on our journey: choosing hope over despair; seeing the “blessing” in the setback; and opening our arms instead of shutting others out.
Like Peter, it’s about looking for the Savior and seeing for ourselves the magnificence of the Creator - in larger-than-life-events, and in everyday moments.
We are the heirs of the promise – a new life in Christ!
