Spring is such an anticipated season for me, especially since living in the Midwest. The blankets of snow melt away, trees start to blossom and birds begin chirping yet again, like every year before. Sometimes in the dead of winter, I wonder if spring will ever come. Sometimes I forget spring is a promise. Glorious, new days are on their way, even when I think the hopeless, dark days of winter will stick around forever. Spring is a tangible reminder of new life, hope, and restoration.
It's fitting then, that spring coincides with Easter, as Easter is a celebration of the new life we are offered in Jesus, the hope we have in heaven and the restoration God brings to His children. We are forgiven because Christ died for us, in our place. There is so much to be thankful for!
"According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." -- 1 Peter 1:3
Happy Easter! He is risen indeed!
