I love when Easter is in the month of April. March seems too early to celebrate Resurrection Life formally. (I know we need to celebrate Resurrection Life all the time.) But April seems more appropriate than March. Spring is bursting forth, trees are budding, flowers are blooming, the weather is warmer it just seems like April and Easter is a good fit and celebrating just feels right. April, however, has one little thing hanging over its head, “April Fool’s Day”. What a way to begin a month. Let’s make something out of it, okay?
The book of Proverbs often talks about the foolishness of rejecting God, rejecting His wisdom, and His guidance. So, let’s not be fools. Let’s embrace all that Christ has for us. Let’s search for, run after, hold clear the precious truths and guidance of the Holy Spirit. May we allow our God to pour into us the Resurrection Life He has freely given to us. May we celebrate a the newness of life that April has to offer, both physically and spiritually.
Looking forward to celebrating Easter with you!
