As the new light fills my landscape the waking forest begins to send out new life. For the first year ever my volunteer apple tree has produced bloom on every branch. The sweet blossoms are absolutely alive with bumblebees. These little wonders are seeing the world for the first time. Most queen bumblebees nest underground in winter in a borrowed hole. It’s in that dark underground place where they lay and tend the new life that is to emerge in Spring. When the brood hatches they collect pollen and nectar to bring back to hive.
With this being Easter weekend the symbolism isn’t lost on me. Jesus also borrowed a hole in the ground where he brought forth new life. I’ve often contemplated that the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter morning had to be the darkest day in history. To the natural world there had been a darkness that fell across the land and an earthquake that destroyed the temple. The believers had seen the Messiah slain and sealed in a tomb. But much like the new light of Spring and the new life emerging from the ground Christ arose and with him a new world for mankind. Not a word ran by the law of man but by the Grace of God and merciful judgment. And just like the new brood of bumblebees we are new eyes exploring a new world.
Happy Easter friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
