Pale, pure and still…Christ’s body lay wrapped in burial linen, hidden in the darkness of the grave.
So the lily slumbers, appearing without life or luster, its petals tightly closed in the gloom of night. God created the lily to blossom in the light of day…to open wide its pale, pure, translucent petals to greet the heavens.
Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection were like the blossoming of the lily. Though we are born into sin and darkness, because God sacrificed His son, we can blossom and flourish since our sins are forgiven.
How beautiful are the lilies as they open to the sunrise, their glorious white petals spread wide with promise. On Easter morning, let us open our hearts with praise and thanksgiving for God’s gift of salvation! Alleluia!

It’s easy to smile at a cheerful person, but how much greater the blessing to try to cheer up a discouraged or angry person. Joyfulness is contagious! Paul writes in his letter to the Romans (1:1-12), “For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you, that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each others faith, both yours and mine.” Share your joy with others at your house of worship this week; God will smile on you!
