Dreaming of a White Easter

Snowflakes the size of cottonballs weren't what I expected behind my curtains Easter morning.

Don't worry, the bunnies still came out to play.

An unusual Easter, indeed, but Easter nonetheless. A rich celebration, the remembrance of the weekend that shattered the barrier between God and ordinary people. The weekend we were made white as snow. This day is not a reminder only, but also a spark of what is to come. We have much to anticipate.

13And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him. Colossians 2:13-15

18For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. Romans 8:18-21

Oh -- and I forgot to mention -- here's Monday morning.

p.s. bear with me, my photography is a work in progress
