A sunrise any morning is always a lovely sight but on Easter Sunday, it is always extra special, as it dances with joy on the morning that’s in it.

‘The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.’ ~Robert Flatt

Easter is indeed a special time of year. The Easter message is one that gives us all hope and gives us a timely lift. We all have our difficult moments. We carry burdens, darkness, hurts, pain and disappointments. We’re not on our own, every single person carries these. But the Easter message reminds us, that right in the middle of them, there is a promise of new life, new beginnings and a sense of hope and promise. Without Easter we would have absolutely nothing but with Easter we have indeed everything. With Easter coming so late this year, there are so many signs of Easter all around us paricularly in our gardens, walkways, parks and countryside. The coming week tends to be nice and relaxed. Let’s enjoy these many Easter moments around us.
