Remember how I was boo hooing over my lilacs, and how I was sure that due to their early budding, and then our deep freeze for a week, that I was going to get no lilacs?
Well, that turned out not to be true! My lilacs have sprung to life! I couldn't believe it last week when I realized that they were going to be blooming, and this week they've started.
I thought that was kind of appropriate for Easter week. Beauty for ashes, that is just what God gives us as a gift from the death and resurrection of Jesus.
