“‘Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Good Sunday morning, beautiful people ~ Happy Easter! Easter has always been a favorite time for me. The land is overflowing with majestic beauty, the air is cool and lovely, and hope is truly alive. Hope is a marvelous thing, especially when we stop and think of our situations last April when COVID had turned our world upside down.
“The very first Easter taught us this: that life never ends and love never dies.” ~
The legend of the dogwood tree is a story I have heard since I was a child. The petals of the flowers, always four, actually form in the shape of a cross. The center of the bloom has a tight grouping of tiny yellow/green buds in a shape that resembles the crown of thorns, and the tip of each bloom is indented as if it was dented by a nail. I always remember the legend when I see a lovely dogwood in bloom.
“Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.” ~ S.D. Gordon
“This is The Day The Lord Has Made Let Us Rejoice and Be Glad.” ~ Psalm 118:24
“For I remember it is Easter morn, And life and love and peace are all new born.” ~ Alice Freeman Palme

“The great gift of Easter ~ hope.” ~ Basil Hume
