Christ is Risen! Christ is Risen Indeed! A day to celebrate new life and new beginnings.
Although, when I woke up this morning, it certainly didn’t feel like a normal Easter…rain, overcast, a little chilly…not quite the Easter that I was hoping for, and not the best morning for Caleb to experience his very first Easter Egg Hunt.

Not necessarily a HUGE improvement but when I shifted my focus, I could see the colors in the trees and the potential for new life.
And I think that’s part of what Easter is all about. Shifting our focus…seeing the new reality that’s out there right in front of us…even though it might not be what we thought we were looking for, I think God and God’s Spirit can surprise us sometimes…
