It’s Easter! Put a Little Spring in Your Step

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

Percy Bysshe Shelley, “The Sensitive Plant”

Easter is alive with springtime rains and pastel flowers which nudge their sleepy heads through the greening grass and stretch toward the sunshine.  We, too  embrace the warmer light of spring and stretch and yawn and bring ourselves back to life.  With renewed hopes, our spirits soar and like the proverbial Easter bunny, we put more bounce in our steps.

Easter reminds us too of God’s love and refreshes us with spring’s celebration of budding trees and flowers.  Mother earth calls out to us to come to the garden and be renewed by her fragrant garments, ready to relax and rewind.  Tender flowers stand up and beckon us closer.  All winter, they stayed quietly rooted to their task and awaited the next call to action.  They weren’t out of the game, they simply stepped back and rested.

Sometimes we run the race, huffing and puffing to the finish line and bursting with excitement as we achieve the goal and take home the prize.  Other times we’re at rest, listening, waiting and watching for the moment when we will run again and fulfill our dreams.  It’s the resting and the waiting and the listening that bring renewal.

Martin Luther called the birds “theologians” because they sang no matter what the weather looked like.  They believed all was well.  We’re ready to sing along with them and create a little “hallelujah” chorus of our own.

Let springtime renew your spirit and bring you back to the light of God’s love. As sunshine pours into your heart, embrace a new mission and fulfill a new purpose. Chirping birds chant a new song, yellow daffodils and shy violets offer to color your world, and warmer breezes beckon you to come outside and join in on the chorus.  Easter is a feast to renew the spirit, and its partner, springtime, graces the table with gentle joy.

Easter is not only about your own spiritual renewal, but is also about rejuvenating the souls of your loved ones.  Want to encourage your family and friends to soak in the beauty of the season and remind them of Easter’s true meaning?  Send them a Blue Mountain Easter eCard today!
