Easter Lily

I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.

~ John 11:25-26

 Aven's Easter Lily

Easter morn with lilies fair
Fills the church with perfumes rare,
As their clouds of incense rise,
Sweetest offerings to the skies.
Stately lilies pure and white
Flooding darkness with their light,
Bloom and sorrow drifts away,
On this holy hallow’d day.
Easter Lilies bending low
in the golden afterglow,
Bear a message from the sod
To the heavenly towers of God.

-Louise Lewin Matthews

An Easter Lily was delivered to Aven yesterday from Holly, Todd and Marly with a request that it be planted in her garden so that each year that it blooms, she will know that they are always thinking of her. D and I have the most amazing friends who somehow know when we need them the most. Before the delivery arrived I was just thinking how I should have had a one month old baby dressed in a pretty pink Easter dress with a bow taped to her head... and then the Lily arrived and made my heart smile.
