On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer.
Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.
Easter is not a time for groping through dusty, musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove life eternal. It is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope, a day to banish doubts and seek the slopes where the sun is rising, to revel in the faith which transports us out of ourselves and the dead past into the vast and inviting unknown.
Happy Easter. May happy thoughts and springtime flowers brighten all your Easter hours.
"Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness."
~~Floyd W. Tomkins~~
The cross is the victory, the resurrection is the triumph...The resurrection is the public display of the victory,
the triumph of the crucified one."
No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown."
Easter tells us that life is to be interpreted not simply in terms of things but in terms of ideals.
~~Charles M. Crowe~~
Bunny rabbits wiggle,
So much they make me giggle.
They wiggle their ears,
They wiggle their nose,
The tail on their rear,
Wiggles too, I suppose.
And just when I say “Stop wiggling, stop!”
They wiggle all over, and take a big hop!
Easter is a time to rejoice, be thankful, be assured that all is forgiven so life extends beyond the soil of earth.
Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.
Earth’s saddest day and gladdest day were just three days apart
The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.
It is the hour to rend thy chains,
The blossom time of souls.
~~Katherine Lee Bates~~
The stars shall fade away, the sun himself
Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years;
But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth,
Unhurt amid the war of elements,
The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.
A strangely reflective, even melancholy day. Is that because, unlike our cousins in the northern hemisphere, Easter is not associated with the energy and vitality of spring but with the more subdued spirit of autumn?
Do we believe that there is equal economic opportunity out there in the real world, right now, for each and every one of these groups? If we believed in the tooth fairy, if we believed in the Easter Bunny, we might well believe that.
I am very proud of this work because it is more about the meaning of the Easter Rising and its relationship to what this whole century has been about, people liberating themselves, freeing themselves.
The spirit of Easter is all about Hope, love, and joyful living.
Let every man and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not merely, "Christ is risen," but "I shall rise."
