Easter finery...

There is absolutely something magical about spring...

I don't know whether it's the extra daylight or brighter sunshine...

 but the air is just full of new possibilities...



Maybe it's the sweet colors of Easter...


The snowy whiteness of bunnies...


or the pastels of colored eggs...




the first songs of bluebirds...



or the chirping of chickies...

The stillness of winter is gone...the air just comes to life this time of year...

It's no wonder God chose this season on the kingdom calender for the resurrection...

"Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive?  He isn't here!  He is risen from the dead!"  Luke 24:5-6

Have a blessed Easter week,
Patty

I was just thinking today how perfect spring is for the resurrection celebration. So much symbolism in nature at this time of year that reflects new life.

Thanks for joining Spiritual Sundays!

How beautifully put. This is the season for new beginnings, to trust in what Jesus did for us and start anew.

Welcome to Spiritual Sundays. Blogger seems to be messed up this morning so I can't see many of your images. I'll come back later for another look. I noticed you live in southern California. I grew up in socal and spent many years there as an adult. You mentioned you live in a 1954 house. That's the year I graduated from high school. Right away I felt a connection with you.

I love the spring and Easter season also. As I said, the pictures are not there right now, only question marks. I'll come back later.
Have a wonderful week.
