Easter Sunday ~ A Glorious Day

“The very first Easter taught us this: that life never ends and love never dies.” ~ Kate McGahan

Good morning, dear friends.  I hope this holy day finds you under blue skies and surrounded by those you love.  To me, Easter is such a glorious day.  A time to celebrate the season of hope and renewal.  Blooms abound, as does new life.  And, there are mysteries to celebrate too.  Mysteries we don’t understand and perhaps, we must wait for our explanation.  However, I do know one day we will see and understand.

 “Mysteries, Yes” ~ Mary Oliver

Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous
to be understood.

How grass can be nourishing in the

mouths of the lambs.

How rivers and stones are forever

in allegiance with gravity

while we ourselves dream of rising.

How two hands touch and the bonds

will never be broken.

How people come, from delight or the

scars of damage,

to the comfort of a poem.

Let me keep my distance, always, from those

who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say
“Look!” and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.

If you have never held a newborn lamb, I urge you to find a farm and ask to see the babies.  Anyone who has been through a successful lambing season is always proud to show off the precious ones.  They are so sweet, love to be held, and nibble about your face.  They enjoy nuzzling in your hair or smelling whiskers or a beard.

“It’s not just in the air.  Spring is in the light.  There’s a different light in March and April.  It’s in the grass, leaves, and flowers.  It’s in the birdsong and baaa of baby lambs.  Mostly though, spring blooms in my heart.” ~ Toni Sorenson

“There is something of the marvelous in all things of nature.” ~  Aristotle

To be adopted by a wild bunny makes one feel as though they have been chosen by a divine and loving source to enjoy a unique gift of nature.    We had such a gift a couple of springs ago.  A delightful bunny would come to visit when I called him.  He would sit on the patio with me and check out the blooms when I was weeding.  His name was Buggs.  The following spring she returned with her babies and we name her Blossom.

“For I remember it is Easter morn, and life and love and peace are all new born.” ~ Alice Freeman Palmer

Dear friends, thank you for your visit.  Know I wish you and yours a beautiful and peaceful Easter Sunday.

And. . .

In our torn and ragged world,  May “peace be new born.”

Amour,

Sandra

How sweet that the bunny adopted you! I have not held a baby lamp but I have held a baby goat! Happy Easter Sandra.

Good morning, Penny. Baby goats are sweet too. Although, I believe they are a little more active. Hope you and your family had a lovely Easter.

Happy Easter, Sandra!
I love your images of the bunnies and the beautiful little lamb! I’ve never held a baby lamb!

What a wonderful experience you had with your own bunny Blossom, and her babies!

There are so many things to behold on Easter! Blessings to you and your husband on this special day!

Oh, Pam, if you know of anyone in your area that raises sheep, you all should take the girls and Wyatt when he is a bit older. They would love them. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter day and that your week ahead will be full of blooms and happy days.

This is so beautiful, Sandra. I can’t imagine how much joy in holding a new born lamb or being adopted by a bunny. (I just feel lucky when I SEE one!). I hope our Easter was a beautiful day filled with color, love and light.

Good morning, Jeanie. Lambs and bunnies – both were a joyful experience I will never forget. We had a lovely day and I hope you and Rick did also. Have a beautiful week full of the gorgeousness of spring.

What a sweet story about the bunny! Baby creatures of most sorts are adorable. I’m so thankful for the hope of Easter.

I missed this last week – I’m so glad I saw it now. What a beautiful post. I loved your thoughts, Sandra. And what a sweet story about Buggs actually being a Blossom and she came with her bunnies to visit.
