Easter preparations are going on behind this door.
My favorite season is Spring for so many reasons. I feel a spiritual renewal with Easter and all that it represents. It is a time of rebirth for all living things. God has given us so many blessings.
I love the colors of green that begin to surround us as leaves begin to return to the trees, and as bulbs begin to spring from their winter retreat.
And, all of the beautiful blooms that occur. The ever present and faithful dogwood, and the bright colors of the daffodils. Oh, and the breathtaking hues of all of the azaleas - all shades of pinks, corals, lavenders and whites.
Today on my way to work I not only saw daffodils blooming, but additionally there were blooming pear trees, tulip trees, pansies and many others. I make a point of taking different routes to work so that I can enjoy beautiful views each day.
I love Easter bunnies, and young children dressed in their new outfits. I love Easter baskets and Easter egg hunts. And, of course, chocolate bunnies.
When I was growing up we always had a special dinner for Easter. My mother always baked a ham, and she served it with many other delicious dishes. Now, I so enjoy preparing Easter dinner for our family, and everyone finds a special treat at their place at the table.
So, if you come to our front door, be assured that Easter bunnies are welcome. Please come with love in your heart, and be careful not to step on any Easter eggs that may be hiding in our yard.
