"Up From the Grave He Rose"

I'm sitting in front of my open window on this perfect day. Outside birds are chirping and busying themselves with homebuilding, preparing to birth new life into the world. The trees are in various stages of budding and blossoming, bursting forth delicate young leaves. The light, warm breeze wafting through my window carries the clean scent of all of God's newness.

As I sit here enjoying this special treat from God, I think of how He transforms nature - winter to spring, slow decay to instant rebirth, death to resurrection. How can anyone experience a moment like this and deny the salvation Jesus' sacrifice and resurrection offers?

God's glory, His precious Son, vivid and bold, in a simple moment near an open window. It's amazing how He replenishes spring moisture to our winter-dehydrated souls. May God replenish your soul with the promise of new life through the celebration of Jesus' sacrifice and resurrection.

"There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world, by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again."

    The resurrection ... a much needed reminder that we we see isn't all there is. Good post.

    John 11:25, 26. Yes I believe as so. Very good metaphor Karen. He IS a breathe of fresh air to the soul. GBY Karen.

    I'm behind on my blog reading so I'm filled with joy to see you have not posted a gazillion times since I last checked in. ;-)
    Love this has been a stress filled month, no I take that back, year, and I love the fact that no matter how bad things get, there is still hope to be had.
