Gently Falling Snow on Easter Morning
He is Risen!
He is Risen Indeed!
Happy Easter - we awoke this morning to gently falling snowflakes dotting the green landscape of our back yard. It is snowing on the daffodils, the magnolia blossoms, the greenery of the lilac tree...and the doves. It's 2 degrees C out (35 F), and supposed to get up to about 5C (41F) later today, so the snow won't stay around, even though it is starting to stick a little on the cooler shrubs and corners of the driveway. Yesterday's flurries didn't stick at all.
It's BEAUTIFUL and calming. Thank you, Lord, for this little extra Easter gift.
These days I've been waking up with my eyes closed, face to face with my heart and going "Ew! Dark, ugly, weak, treacherous! Oh help me, Lord!"
I think it's time I change my habit and wake up face to face with God instead, going "Ah! Beautiful and calming! Gracious, strong, wise, glorious! Hallelujah!"
I think I will like waking up much better and get a better start on my day. Eyes on Him, not on myself. Reprogramming myself and my schedule for tomorrow morning...Accessing...Lock.
We serve a God who raises from the dead! What better promise of redemption for me.

It was 32 degrees here in Virginia this morning as we stood overlooking the river and sang, "Christ the Lord is Risen Today" at the Easter sunrise service put on by the Campbell Memorial Presbyterian Church in Weems. The sun did indeed rise, just as the Son really did rise from the grave that first Easter morn. Thank you God for making me whole, and wholly forgiven and blessed. Safe journey..love to all, Mom
