Blessings

Glimpses of Easter Weekend:

Crushing a bright confetti egg over someone’s head.

Ham and beans and jello salad.

Caressing each heavy ivory key, in perfect time, perfect rhythm, weaving a perfect web of sound and emotion — Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.

The silent crunch of leaves beneath my booted foot.

Waking up to the aroma of pancakes and maple syrup.

Nestling eggs into special little hiding spots.

Homemade applesauce.

Gently plaiting my sister’s long golden hair, watching each strand capture and reflect the brilliant afternoon sunshine.

Deep, philosophical conversation.

Watching elderly couples hold hands in church.

Pine trees silhouetted against the twilit sky.

Feeling the swell of myriad voices raised in worship, crying out in praise to the One who gave his life for us, and who rose again, giving us Life in Him!
