HAPPY EASTER

Easter to me means a time of new beginnings.
Since we celebrate Easter at springtime,all of nature is coming alive once more.
More than that,Easter means that I can have victorious life now 
and eternal life in Heaven some day.

To celebrate this special day I am sharing some sunrises which I have captured over the last year.
This first one is taken from my deck.What a way to greet the day.

Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless.
Charles M. Grove

Again a picture taken from my deck.
The clouds looked amazing on this recent morning.I thought I didn't like the trees in the picture,
but now I believe they add some depth to the scene.

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.  Robert Flatt


This was the scene at our local lake as the sun was peeking above the horizon.
I love that path across the water.


I got this Gerbera Daisy last fall,but the colour and everything about this picture says,
Happy Easter to me.

I wish all those who read this a very Happy Easter.



Thought for today:
Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection,not in books only,
but in every leaf in springtime.
Martin Luther

  35. Your lake is free of ice! Ours is still covered. Every year there is a little draw where you guess when the flag on the little ship goes down ... it only goes down when the ice melts through. The flag hasn't gone down yet.

    Those gerbera daisies are amazing.
