A new beginning
After the bleakness of Winter, a stroll outside will reveal a newness in the air.
All the flowers displaying their vast arrays of colours and trees budding out makes one feel a certain amount of joy and optimism. There is a revival of life.
Springtime is when we celebrate in the course of our long calendar year the Resurrection of Christ and how he defeated death on that Easter morning long ago.
For us, as Christians, his sacrifice on the cross gave us a new life and a new beginning. That selfless act allowed us to have a union with God that is so precious and should never be taken lightly.
We should evermore be mindful of Christ’s words; ‘I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die! (St John 11:25-26)
