There's something about the weather on Easter weekend... the dark clouds and storms on Good Friday and the transition to sunlight and warmth on Easter day... God seems to be speaking through creation of his miracle of salvation. It is as real as the weather: the storms and the sunlight.
Creations continues to testify through symbols of new life: the eggs, the animals and everything in bloom. The dawn of spring seems to forgive the harshness of winter. Hope is alive.
He is risen, indeed!
