My mom and I were raking leaves today, and we found spring. Fall is my preferred season, but seeing spring up close and in color today raised it a bit in my eyes. I usually see spring as a muddy mess. Seeing the bounty under the half-foot of dried leaves, smelling the fresh air, touching the bed of leaves, and hearing the birds sing was spring in person. Today’s beauty was Easter alive and well.
Easter is rebirth, renewal, and Christ returning for me – my sins ARE forgiven. No one else ever has to die for me. If I ever meet a man worth marrying, I want someone strong enough to live life with me, because Christ already made the ultimate sacrifice.
