Spring, Easter brightness and blessing
“For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Isn’t it amazing and refreshing to watch people once the warmer weather makes an appearance? The steps are jauntier, the smiles more frequent, and the stores start carrying the pretty pastels of Easter, spring, and pots of tulips, narcissus and more. It seems as though all the colors are brighter. There is a lift to spirits tired of winter and gray days, and the realizing rebirthing and renewing process has begun. It’s refreshing!
Easter has just passed as I write this, but I’m still pleased and grateful for the meaning of the season. It’s so humbling for me to realize Jesus chose to go to the cross for US, for ME. Wow!
And for us Christians, it is a time of reflection and marvel that the son of God walked this earth, endured trials, temptations, scorn, rejection and His steps did not falter. He stayed the course, knowing all the while he would suffer abysmal torture and then hang from a cross as one of the worst offenders of that time, all while He was innocent. But He chose to do this, His Father’s will, for us….for me. I can’t fathom how I was worth it. But very fortunate for me, I do not have to understand how He could do this, only be extremely and eternally grateful that He did. And I try to be the best I can be to others, to share the lightness of knowing Him, and grow to improve each day.
The winter pall is fading, and the spring days are here. So, with the new colors of flowers, longer days, and the Easter season, I am humbled by what Jesus did for ME, for ME. And for all if they choose to believe. So, for me, John 3:16 is one of the most humbling verses. His death brought us the light and the everlasting life.
So, no wonder there is brightness. The Son is shining! He is my most favorite and wonderful blessing. The best of “mybellaviews!”
