Happy Easter!

Easter is about beginnings. It seemed like the end, but it turned out to be a beginning. No one knew the world would change. No one could see that far ahead. Good Friday starts in pain and ends in death. Easter starts in death and ends in life and joy. I hope your day is filled with love and peace and the calm assurance that we don't end at death and we will rise to greet a new glorious day.


So sang the Host:
Be, spider and bird,
Be, wolf and whale,
Be, mite and giant,
Be, all things that fly,
All things that crawl,
And all things between, be!

Be, cherub and seraph,
Be, man and woman,
Be, lamb and lion,
Be, all things that are fierce,
All things that are gentle,
And all things that are both, be!

Be, love and hate,
Be, sorrow and joy,
Be, envy and generosity,
Be, all things that move the heart,
All things that still the soul,
And all things that renew the spirit, be!

Be, all things that were,
Be, all things that will be,
Be, all things that could be,
Be, all things that will not be,
Let all things be!
