Happy Easter to All!
It's been hectic, getting ready for these last few days from Holy Thursday through this morning, Easter Sunday itself. I didn't think I'd have time to post anything this week.
I've spent alot of time in choir, between practicing at home and performing in our many Holy Week services. But, it's been a very rewarding time as well...many new friendships, beautiful music to sing and beautiful people to sing them with. Art seems to be a perfect catalyst for renewing faith.
So, I surprised even myself when I took a moment to walk out onto the front porch at the farm and watch the sun rise.
My view is below...the clouds in the west and north, the sunrise on the east landing on the dormant grasses in the front lawn--where, if you look close enough, you can see the beginnings of green.
Everything I see in front of me-- the gray and brown images of plants and trees, beaten down by the Winter--are now ready to awaken in the annual rebirth of Spring.
What a glorious metaphor for Easter and how lucky we are to witness this miracle of Nature every year...a reminder that we too can be re-born.
