From Lent to Easter

Well, I woke up this morning looking forward to rain that has not yet come.  So we wait a bit longer for more rain.  We begin to see signs of spring and growth because of water, sun and care.  Kind of a good metaphor for April as we segue from Lent to Easter.  What fruits will be borne of our Lenten journeys?  How will the Easter resurrection become new life for us – again?  

It is lovely to anticipate how God works in our lives, during hard times and good, fair weather and storms.  The love of Jesus and the power of Jesus so distinctly demonstrated on the resurrection morning reminds us that we have a great and mighty God – a great and mighty God who loves us mightily.

That’s a great big splash of good news to spur us on to growth!
