During the week I read a story which struck a chord in my heart. I share it here.
A grandmother with six fairly young grandchildren spent many days preparing an Easter Egg hunt in her backyard. She made six different coloured baskets and hid them all over her yard. She hid dozens of eggs. The purpose was that the coloured eggs would match the individual coloured basked. She returned to the house to sit exhausted to await their arrival.
She took a hurried picture of her back lawn ,showing the different hiding places and posted it on line to some friends.
Her phone started ringing and people were very excited.
‘Please tell us how you made that shadow’ they asked. ‘We would love to add this effect.’
She looked on line and was stunned to find a shadow of a CROSS across the lawn leading to the grove of trees where the eggs were hidden.
Perhaps, it was caught by the sun and reflected from a weather vane or from a tree?.
No one could find the certain reason..
‘It changed my attitude’ the Gran wrote. ‘Suddenly the real Reason for the Easter Season was clear and impacting.’
We had the most wonderful Family Easter where faith and fun were together. Peace was our Gift to each other. The Cross of Christ was not visible but the message impacted our hearts and lives afresh.
MAY THE SHADOW OF THE CROSS SPIRITUALLY BRING YOU A REMINDER THIS DAY OF WHAT WAS ACHIEVED FOR ALL OF US SO THAT WE MIGHT HAVE LIFE IN ABUNDANCE.
Blessings and Peace!
