Let every man and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not merely, “Christ is risen,” but “I shall rise.” ~Phillips Brooks
I’m enjoying a work-free weekend at home with my darling James, but I had to briefly sign on to share with you this piece of inspiring work by the insanely talented Jeremy Cowart. I have long been a fan of Jeremy, and am continually intrigued and empowered by watching his artistic process. Jeremy, thanks for sharing your fabulous creativity, and providing me (and many others) with the perfect piece to represent my greatest passions of art, of music, of faith and humanity. You made my heart soar.
I’m off to cuddle with my husband and dream of the delicious ham I’ll be cooking for our Easter Feast tomorrow. While I fondly look back on the Easter Sundays of my childhood; complete with church pageants, chocolate eggs, epic neighborhood egg hunts, and matching sibling outfits (oh the photos I could share), I’m particularly fond of the newer traditions I have started. This holiday has taken on a whole new meaning as I adjust to life in New England. After a particularly blizzardy winter, paired with a season of personal & physical brokenness, I merely have to take a walk outside to be reminded of what this weekend means to me. I have been raised in church, but I think no matter your beliefs, there is something so beautiful and transcendent about Christ’s story, and the power of hope. As I walk around on my healthy & tumor-free ankle; as I see in the newly blooming trees, I witness first hand that after a time of deathly cold, the warmth of life can return… I am able to see that new life, and it all begins with hope. Mine comes from my faith, and I hope that is something each of you can find in your life, whatever form that may take. I look forward to celebrating that hope & faith tomorrow, without the fanfare. Just the simplicity of good friends, good food, & celebrating good news… it’s truly a blessing indeed.
