“Look at the daffodils!” she said, viewing our backyard.
Most people feel elated when they spot colorful shoots breaking through the cold soil. And for good reason. Spring's flowers in the wake of winter's pall proclaim resurrection.
Indeed, Psalm 19 notes nature's eloquence. “The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech …”
And pouring forth speech for me are the daffodils, particularly those that flourish unmaintained in cemeteries. Couple their eloquence with the Good News of Jesus Christ, and this announcement rings: “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die” (John 11: 25-26).
Wishing You and Yours a Wondrous Easter,
