I see today as a day for celebrating new life and holding on to hope.
We have an Easter Tree in our house – apparently it’s a German tradition originally. We hang decorated eggs on branches as a symbol of new life being restored where there appears to be none.
Whether life seems full or empty, there’s always room for hope. Even if we’ve lost hope for now, I believe Easter gives us hope for the future.
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4
I also see today as a day for celebrating love winning out over everything else.
You broke into the silence and sang a song of hope
A melody resounding in the deep of my soul
You have come running
You tore down every wall All the while shouting
My Love you’re worth it all
No sin, no shame,
No past, no pain
Can separate me from Your love No height, no depth,
No fear, no death
Can separate me from Your love
(Unstoppable Love by Jesus Culture)
Whatever your beliefs or circumstances, my wish is that you’ll find love and hope this Easter.
