There’s so much about the holiday that speaks life. It’s shouting from the bold blooms of azalea bushes & teeming out of birds’ nests & bunny holes. It’s warm & everything has awakened, come out to play. Our world, which was so dull & gray, jolts back to life in technicolor tones, in blues & pinks & violets & greens.

He is risen! He is risen!

We all rise too.
