We hope that all our readers have a wonderful Easter holiday!
‘Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees
Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.’
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Christ the Lord is risen today, Sons of men and angels say. Raise your joys and triumphs high; Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
“ Charles Wesley
“The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.” ~Robert Flatt
“In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it,
You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade.
I’ll be all in clover and when they look you over,
I’ll be the proudest fellow in the Easter Parade.
On the avenue, Fifth Avenue, the photographers will snap us,
And you’ll find that you’re in the rotogravure.
Oh, I could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet,
And of the girl I’m taking to the Easter Parade.”
“Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.” ~Floyd W. Tomkins
“The story of Easter is the story of God’s wonderful window of divine surprise.” ~Carl Knudsen
“Think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes singing,
At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be ringing!” ~Edna Dean Proctor, “Easter Bells”
“Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,
Easter’s on its way”…..
