I think one of my favorite things about Spring is how it symbolizes a new beginning – a new birth. Trees get fresh green leaves. Flowers make their way out of the ground filling the earth with color and fragrance. Warm sunshine on your face awakens something within you. Easter is the perfect illustration of this awakening. Because of what took place on the cross, we are able to experience a new beginning in Christ. Of course this is something we should be mindful of every day but to see it displayed throughout creation this time of year makes it that much more personal.
2 Corinthians 5:17
