I love Easter. I love the hope of spring, fleeting as it may be in our area.
No sooner do the bulbs hit, than perennial shrubs break free of their winter slumber.
Most Easter holidays we spend informally. We do an Easter Egg Hunt with the school my mother-in-law teaches at.
It was cool to see the new kids appear on the scene some years, and see how much my older ones have grown.
I try to capture a dressy picture of all the kids each year. And with kids – that whole sitting still and getting a photo taken thing?
Sometimes that looks this.
But every so rarely you move your finger at just the right moment and you capture something like this.
And that makes me smile.
Whatever else we do around the Easter holidays; the eggs, the fun, the flowers, the new life…we never forget that our faith is what gives us the reason to celebrate in the first place.
Easter is the amazing holiday of dichotomy – a holiday that celebrates a death? But of course, for Christians it is ultimately a celebration of life. I think that’s why I love being with my family – focusing on the life we have together – during the Easter holidays.
