Spring and Easter are Here!

We had our lawn mowed yesterday for the first time of the season. What a wonderful, fragrant reminder of the newness of spring. After the long, cold winter, relief is in sight.

Hope, newness, a fresh start.

It reminds me of God's love, God's mercy. He loved us enough to send His Son to die on the cross for our sins. So we can have hope, newness, and a fresh start.

John 3:16-18 (The Message)
"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.

I hope you have a blessed Easter this Sunday. He is risen!
