My Favorite Season... Spring!
Spring! It's my favorite time of year. Oh, I know... autumn has it's beautiful foliage,
summer has it's warm days great for swimming and enjoying the outdoors, and even winter
is beautiful when the snow falls (but not too much snow!). But in my opinion, it's spring that is
the most beautiful time of year. To see those little green flower shoots pushing up out of
the ground and the small buds start to form on the bare tree branches, to hear the sweet
sound of birds chirping in the early morning hours... ah, it's just great!
You see, in the spring, everything seems to come back to life. And as we think along
those lines, it is in the spring that we celebrate the greatest event that ever occurred... the
resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus came back to life on that first
Easter morning, breaking forever the chains of sin and death for those who will put their
faith and trust in Him. But oh what a price He paid for our sins! He suffered betrayal,
public humiliation, torture and the pain and agony of the cross as He became the final
sacrificial lamb whose blood would from that day forward have the power to wash away the
sins of all who would ask forgiveness. O what a Savior!
So as we look forward to another beautiful spring, let us anticipate too a glorious
and blessed Easter!
He lives! He lives! Christ Jesus lives today!
