I love Easter. It seems like all good things come together this time of year.
Spring is sprung. Although Easter is too early this year, normally there are flowers in abundance outdoors. Tulips and daffodils poke their heads through the cold ground and say hello to the warm sun. My favorite flower is the wild crocus that grows in abundance on the prairie.
Easter is also my wedding anniversary. We were married (many, many years ago) on the Friday preceeding Palm Sunday. Can you guess the era by the hair styles and glasses?
But the real reason we celebrate is the best thing about Easter. At Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus but on Easter we celebrate his death and resurrection. Thankfully the season has not been ruined by total commercialism.
Happy Easter. Rejoice, celebrate and enjoy.
