As Vancouverites gear up for a ‘long Easter weekend’, the promises of Spring & new life echo throughout the land.
Will there be some time for rest & relaxation on your agenda?
Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life. ~S.D. Gordon
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. ~Author unknown, as quoted in the Lewiston Tribune
For I remember it is Easter morn,
And life and love and peace are all new born.
~Alice Freeman Palmer
Awake, thou wintry earth –
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, “An Easter Hymn”
Well pleaseth me the sweet time of Easter
That maketh the leaf and the flower come out.
~Bertran de Born
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.
Fine weekend everyone! Happy Easter!
