I love the church calendar this year. Sometimes Easter is so early that the natural blooms are still closed and all the Easter flowers we see have been forced and seem out of place. Having Easter to celebrate the end of April allows us to experience the re-birth of our environment as we herald the resurrection of our Lord. The anticipation is thrilling. The music of the season is another way of experiencing the joy of Easter. As we thoughtfully go through our Lenten disciplines and live through the highs and lows of Holy Week, let us truly celebrate in the Risen Lord as we welcome the true Spring in our lives.
