"This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun." ~2 Cor. 5:17
Just like the new tulips emerging from the earth we can become new again. I think this is the most amazing part of God's love for us.
Eggs, tradionally served during the season of Lent symbolizes the new life. Look around your yard and in your trees. Do you see new life everywhere? This is his promise to us that we will have new life.
My little apple trees have new buds and blossoms on them. I am reminded of the promise of scrumptious apples that I will harves someday. Just like during Easter we are reminded that someday we will be with Jesus. He has been preparing a place for us.
"Do not let you hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house there are many rooms; if it were not so, I would not have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you." ~ John 14:1
I hope you have a blessed Easter with your family!
