I love Easter, and I love the bluebonnets that are always blooming in the springtime in Texas! Though I haven’t bought or worn a new Easter bonnet in many years, I have always loved Easter bonnets. Something about a new hat, new dress, new life…
Having traveled around the world, I have learned that in many countries the new year is celebrated in springtime. That makes so much more sense than celebrating it in January. In the spring the trees put out leaves, flowers bloom, birds return and give birth to young. New life is everywhere you look.
The greatest new life is the new life we have because the tomb of Christ is empty!
He is risen!
(If you have new life in Christ, I hope you will leave a comment such as: He is risen indeed!)
