hyacinths fragrant and heavy bow -
the Son rises +
On my kitchen table
a multitude of purple orchids -
palm fronds on the floor
Easter Lily blooms -
green paper grass sprinkled
with yellow peep sugar
On Sunday March 27 many Christians celebrated Easter, Orthodox Christians will celebrate Pascha on May 1, and Jewish followers of Messiah, Yeshua will celebrate our Lord's resurrection on Pesach or Passover, which begins April 22. Although the names and dates are different, all Christians believe and celebrate Jesus rising from the dead. The essential truth is that Jesus was crucified, died and was buried, and the third day he rose from the dead, on that we all agree. For me Easter is more than just a day to celebrate this miracle of miracles, it is a day to celebrate the fact that I know without a doubt that death is not the end for me. So I celebrate Easter everyday because everyday I have the hope, joy, and peace that Jesus gave to me that day so very long ago. In fact it was 2,000 years ago, that he burst forth from the tomb alive forever! Amazing!
