I got several nice, unexpected Easter surprises today!
First of all, I was talking to one of my co-workers who showed me the BEAUTIFUL Easter Lilly in her office that had just bloomed and I got chills as she described how when she left her office yesterday the blooms were completely closed up. It made me think about the meaning of Easter and why we celebrate...because Jesus was in a closed tomb but the Tomb was opened, just like the beautiful Lilly, and HE ROSE!!! Giving us VICTORY OVER DEATH in his MARVELOUS RESURECTION!!!!
Then I came home and covered all my flowers to protect them from this DREADFULLY cold weather and I grabbed my ferns off the front porch to bring them in for the night. I noticed a bird fly out as I grabbed it but I thought he was just hanging out in there to get away from the cold wind. I sat the fern down on my kitchen counter and low and behold, a beautiful little nest, about the size of a cupcake, with four perfect little bitty eggs!!! Real Easter Eggs! I put the fern back on the porch so momma bird could find her little babies and within minutes she had flown back into her nest and was keeping her little Easter Eggs warm!
Thanks Lord for the little ways you remind us of your life, death, resurrection, and gift of ETERNAL LIFE!
Yea for Easter and Yea for a LIVING LORD AND SAVIOR!!!
