A time for hope, solemn reflection, new beginnings, forgiveness, promises.
It is in and through His redemptive work we have promise of life everlasting. A new life, as new life in the springtime.
It is His great love for us that He gives us a choice to accept His redemptive work or to reject it. We are free to choose
to reap the rewards or the consequences of our decisions. If it were not so, He would not have told us so.
For those that are not of the Christian persuasion, my prayer for you is that you, too, have peace through renewed hope as springtime reminds us of fresh, new beginnings.
Blessings to all and never forget His promises. 🌈
