*The sun seemed to be dancing and gleaming and bounding across the sky, racing with her and shining brighter than she could ever remember in the clear, fresh air.

And it seemed to her that morning, as she ran, almost as if the whole world had been made anew, almost as if the whole world was singing for joy — the trees, tiny sounds in the grass, the birds…her heart.


* from the Jesus Storybook Bible – Every Story whispers His name.

** This was the completion of our Easter nature plate. And empty tomb with the stone rolled away. A cross with a flower to symbolize the new life given.
