Easter is a miraculous time of new beginnings and new life. So, I would like to start off wishing all of you who celebrate it…. A Very Happy and Blessed Easter! I love this time of year for so many reasons, but especially on a Spiritual level. Everywhere you look there are signs of new life from the greener grass to the budding flowers and trees. The birds are singing again and the squirrels are playing. How amazing is God’s Creation!? On my powerwalk a few days ago, I was thrilled to see the blooming Jacaranda trees (one of my favorite trees) lining several streets in Beverly Hills. The bold purple color always takes my breath away and I am filled with excitement that SPRING HAS OFFICIALLY ARRIVED!
Winter is a time when everything appears to die and lies dormant or is intentionally pruned back in order to grow bigger and better come Spring. We can feel like that at times as well. Have you felt pruned back at bit and are now ready to BLOOM?!? Part of that pruning back is the “letting go” I spoke about a few weeks ago. In order to bloom and become who you are truly meant to be and step into a new life, you have to snip some dead things off. Grab those Spiritual gardening shears sista. Cheers to a fresh start and new beginning!
A MUST SEE!
Are you watching The Bible Series on The History Channel? I highly recommend it. It’s a beautiful Mini-Series produced by Roma Downey (Touched By An Angel) and her husband, Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Apprentice). It’s been the #1 rated show every week since it debuted. Last week’s episode on Palm Sunday especially impacted me as we watched Jesus begin His journey to the cross. The final episode is this Easter Sunday with the Crucifixion. If you do not have cable, you can view it online at the same time as it would appear on TV in your area. They entire series will also be available on DVD. Go to http://www.history.com.
Here’s a sneak peek of the finale:
There will be no Sunday Affirmations this week instead I encourage you to celebrate the special day, celebrate your life, celebrate your family + friends and celebrate a fresh start + the opportunity to bloom.
