Good morning my (what should I call you lot? you come to Mannerbee to read my posts, Mannerbee is my home, so you are friends!)
Good morning Friends. :)
Spring has sprung. Which is a funny term, honestly. I say it as a joke, because there isn't really a spring that springs, but Spring seems to spring overnight, so--I suppose it does actually spring.
The Winter earth becomes prepared by the warm rain that pours down from the heavens...
The sun bursts from the clouds and shines down on the mucky rain-splattered mud, causing magic to happen. The little earth-fairies help raise the new grass from the dirt, inspire young flowers to shoot up, and encourage those bright green un-wanteds to pop up from the ground...they are pretty you must admit...even though they are weeds.
Then the actual flowers begin to open, smiling upon the green grass and young little crawlies grinning from the ground. The spring bliss is fast-here, fast-gone in the South, it is over far too soon, the sun changes to an angle of scorching pestilence and the grass scorches, flowers wilt, and even the mud puddles become cracked and flakey from the heat.
This Spring Spirit doesn't just happen outside the window, but also within. Easter is approaching, the celebration of our Lord Jesus's Resurrection from the grave.
And although the tendency to let the bunnies take over this season is prominent, the meaning of Easter is not forgotten.
Isaiah 53 1-7
Happy Easter, and Spring. :D May all of you have a wonderful Spring Break!
