He is Risen and life renews

Wild plum blossoms in our back pasture - the fragrance is almost overwhelming. A perfect "find" on an Easter afternoon walk. Wonderful Holy Week for us - Good Friday service was moving, reassuring (traditional elements tend to give us a spot on which to stand). Easter Sunday - the empty grave, life renewing in ways we only understand in our small ways. One speaker said we should realize when we respond to the centuries old declaration "He Is Risen" - "He Is Risen Indeed" was said by about one billion believers today. Amen and Amen!

He is Risen indeed! Isn't it great to know that and to know He is waiting for us! That thought just fills my heart with joy!

Beautiful blossoms! I just love the renewal that spring brings to Texas. I am ready for the wildflowers to show their pretty bonnets!
