|My childhood Easter Basket|
has faded to red and a green-black color.
Not normal Easter colors -
and I can't remember what this originally looked like.
I added a "found" nest in the yard.
Some spaghnum moss.
Some fabric strips with burlap threads for a bow.
And Easter waits around the corner.
Light. Hope. Promise.
Through centuries of telling the story.
God breaking into history.
And changing all of our futures
-with the gift of His Son Jesus.
Though our own lives often look faded-
Easter brings us New Life color.
