The last week of Christ's life evokes a roller-coaster of emotions. From his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the last supper, Gethsemane, His crucifixion, His burial, and Easter morning when He arose triumphant over death! As I think of what He conquered - sin, fear, pain, hate, doubt, betrayal, weakness, anger, death, uncertainty, frustration, hurt, pride, and eventually death. I feel all of these things if taken to the Lord, create an opportunity for what the scriptures call a new birth. Mother Nature depicts this perfectly as Spring emerges in new or renewed bursts of colors. As Christ emerged from the tomb victorious, He was literally a new person as He changed from a mortal to an immortal.
This Spring, in what ways can I be re-born? Who can I forgive? Is there someone I can express love to? Do I need to reprioritize my life to reflect the changes I may need to make? Are there past deeds I need to repent of? Who can I prayerfully share these wonderful gospel principles with? Have I expressed love to my loved ones? "Because of Him every one of us has hope of a glorious future. Because of Him, we can have clean slates, second chances, new beginnings. Because of Him, everything is possible. Because of Him, we will never die." -Sheri Dew
What beautiful morning it has been here at the farm! I wish I could be here all day .... but it’s time to go back to work for me.
Went for a walk down the paddock this morning and to my surprise the creek is full and flowing (as it had stopped since Christmas) after the 3 inches of rain we have had over the last few days. And after a year break the herb garden is ready to go. The rosemary and aloe Vera survived the neglect 😂 #jandlozgetgardening#rain#herbspiral
