Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. It is a holiday full of hope and promise in our risen Lord. To me, it seems that this hope is illustrated for our mortal senses in the beauty of Spring flowers and, if we're lucky, warm and sunny weather. (This year it looks like we're in luck-- other years we've had snow on Easter.) It's also my favorite time of year in terms of the church's music... many of my favorite hymns, like this one, are sung at this time of year.
However you are celebrating this beautiful holiday, enjoy!
