Easter Grass

Neither of our children liked that stringy plastic 'easter' grass in their baskets. It was something about the feel of it I think that would really bother them.
Today as I was driving home from Greg and Kelly Goode's wedding I noticed the fields that had been burned. The blackness of them was remarkable next to the brown dry grass. But what was even more remarkable was that really the blackened fields were the only ones that were green. And green they were with sprouts of plants coming up in stark contrast to the burned fields. It was really beautiful... Not that it had been burned but that out of this 'dead' looking ground Life Arose.
We are still in the season of lent.
And yet
the Easter grass coming up from what seems at first to be dead ground.
Gives us hope for our lives, the world and well...Just about everything.
the beauty out of the loss.

God abides
