Easter tells us that life is to be interpreted not simply in terms of things but in terms of ideals. Charles M. Crowe
We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining – they just shine. Dwight L. Moody


REBIRTH TIME – HAPPY SPRING! HAPPY PASSOVER! HAPPY EASTER!: What do you love about this time of the year? Spring, Passover and Easter are times of rebirth/renewal, liberation and resurrection. With Spring, we watch as the earth quietly returns to life with shoots, buds and foliage reawaken after a seemingly long, cold and, in some parts, harsh winter. We spring clean to dust off the ghost of the last season and we open our hearts and mind with a sense of expectancy for what lies ahead. For Easter, we celebrate the resurrection/rise of the Christ into the heavens and by doing so, we are reminded of the liberation and freeing of souls that, like the freeing of buds and plants at the beginning of spring, means a great growth takes place. Christians around the world start the preparations and celebrations days ahead with Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and finally Easter day which falls on April 1st this year. With Passover, we see this major 7-8 day celebration as a commemoration of the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery and their opportunity to create a nation under the leadership of Moses. So, when we take all three into consideration, the motivation for us is to seize this opportunity as a time for our own rebirth/renewal and a time to let go of qualities that limit us… why complicate things? Enjoy the music!

Do You Celebrate any/all of these Special Rebirth Events in your Household?  We celebrate all three in mine and it is a every special time to gather with family and give thanks for the unity, harmony and freedoms we enjoy. It is also a time to give back to others in our community and beyond. Life is full of surprises and it is easy to have our best plans derailed by unforeseen circumstances. The last five years have been very challenging for me but they have also offered some of the best experiences and memories that reaffirm the power and importance of family, grace, and hope in my life. So, if you’ve experienced any challenging events, this year, take a moment to give thanks for the good that has flourished in the face of your hardships. We often forget to give thanks for the sliver of light that comes our way in times of darkness. If we pay attention, the sliver grows into a big bright light that will motivate us to continue on our path and not despair. If we stop to remember that there is a season for everyone and that the planting season is followed by a harvest and then a fallow… Everything that lives and breathes needs a period of hibernation, rest and rebirth. See your time in the trenches as a period of learning and that the new will reappear in time. Don’t give up and remember that you are not alone. Take the edge off by recommitting your self to overcome any stumbling blocks. Breathe new life into your goals. You can do it!

Has this special season of Spring, Easter and Passover inspired hope in you? What precious memories were triggered for you? Do you plan to do anything differently today and beyond? Soon, we will experience the full beauty of spring as more blooms brighten of our landscape.  By the same token, this seasonal shift is a powerful reminder of the promise of the resurrection and the walk to freedom. It has been a long, long, cold winter and I’m excited to embrace the spring. May the refreshing spirit of Easter, Passover and Spring fill our lives with hope, promise and a great rebirth.  Again, Happy Spring time, Happy Easter and Happy Passover!



Have a happy, peaceful and productive week ahead!

    It’s not about what you celebrate during this time of the year but what it brings. All three celebrations is definitely about rebirth and having this renewed feeling about life!
