It’s that time of year…even though the 35 degree weather we have been having here in Northeast Ohio doesn’t seem very “springy” Easter will be here soon enough and so will warmer weather.
I love Easter because it is a sign of new beginnings, it is a rebirth in both an earthly and spiritual sense.
I am a Christian and the Easter season is a reminder of the things that Our Savior Jesus Christ has done to give us all the chance for a rebirth from our sins.
This is probably the thing that I love most about spring. It is a re-birth of every aspect of our lives and a chance to look forward to all of the activities that we can now enjoy outside. Those first warm days are nature’s way of saying “Congrats! You survived another winter of ice and snow, cold feet and hands and bundling up to save money on the heating bill.
I love to open the windows and let the stale air out and the fresh air in. To hear the birds in the morning and to leave the screen door open at night to hear the crickets.
To everything there is a season and spring is a season of new birth and a fresh start.
One great thing to do this spring is to get out of the house and check out Hop with the kiddos or the hubby if he has been good 😉 This movie isn’t just for the little bunnies around your house both kids, teenagers and adults will find something to love about this very funny flick.
A little about Hop…
