See! The winter is past!

See! The winter is past!

Spring is my favorite time of year, when daffodils can be seen and cherry blossom trees make the road sides look pretty. The sun comes out and turns cold frowns into warm smiles on faces of people walking through the crowded city center  It’s a time when just about everything comes to life… Butterflies, Bees and every kind of flower. Children laugh and play in parks filled with families, who otherwise might be at home, glued to the T.V. The ice-cream man is back in business again and all seems well with the world and the world seems so alive!

Why else do I like spring?

March 26th, I enjoyed my second wedding anniversary to Josh. This season for us is a reminder of the beautiful union God birthed in our lives when we made our vows to each other. It also reminds us of the new things that God wants to do in our lives together and the areas where we are growing individually in life’s journey with Him.

Nevertheless, The number 1 reason I like spring is because of Easter Week. I love Easter time! Being a major chocolate fan I really like eating Easter eggs! Most people know of Easter to be about chocolate eggs, cute yellow chicks, Easter Bonnet parades, bunnies and anything else the media has to say about this celebration!

Some of you may know Easter to be a time to celebrate the end of lent (a forty day period of fasting to commemorate the time Jesus spent fasting in the desert before starting his ministry).
My own take on the meaning of Easter changed 9 years ago when I walked head on into the Christian Easter story at my local cinema when seeing the film ‘Passion of the Christ’. From then on my life has changed. I became a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ. Since then I have been celebrating Easter each year with fresh new meaning. You can read my story in the ‘My Journey’ section of this website…
