This post is for the Spiritual Journey First Thursday, a once a month post hosted by a group, writing to a word or idea supplied by their hostess. Each gives their own spiritual take on the topic.
Today's topic is: Easter, new life, spring...
I have chosen to write an acrostic for Easter. It was on an Easter Sunday morning that I received Christ as my Saviour. I am:
Ever grateful for eternal life
Available that awesome
Singular moment a sin burdened Saviour
Traded places to make
Escape possible from a deserved
Spring is the time for resurrection from the dead; it's the time for new hope to "spring". Rising from the earth, the new green, through the tangled mass of gray, brown, dead seems impossible, yet it happens every year, every spring, in our northern climate.
It is a time to realize how new life comes from the seemingly dead, new growth from that which had stopped growing.
We are still not seeing the green in Maine. The snow is still on the ground, but there are spots of brown growing. The green is next. The cycle is apparent again. It is a nice hope to depend on. I have faith that spring will return again.
Faith and hope are two wonderful things that ensure my joy and have changed my outlook on daily life.
Hope you can visit or join in. Our hostess today is Violet Nesdoly.
