April is one of my favorite months of the year. Spring has definitely arrived. The weather is warm. . . things are coming alive again.
And April is usually the month when we celebrate Easter. I love the fact that Easter comes amidst this season of new life. Things that have lied dormant for months all of a sudden burst forth with life.
These beautiful flowers are the first that come up in our yard. Michelle and I didn’t plant these. They are just a great reminder to me that God is making everything new. That which is dead is actually really sleeping, and comes alive in a magnificent way. I’m not even a gardener, but I love Spring flowers!
Maybe you have some flowers in your garden already. We’re going to ask you to bring some flowers on Easter Sunday April 20th. Services at 8:30am, 10:00am, and 11:30am. We want to see our “Mercy Tree” come back alive with life & color! It’s going to be powerful.
Find out more about Easter weekend here. Invite your friends. It’s going to be a great celebration, and may just change your life.
