Our 11-year-old daughter Kaitlyn shared a big thought the other night. It just so happened to be 4 days before Easter.
"I picture our family as a rose. With one last petal left to die.
After that.....we'll be a new flower."
Immediately I went back to the quote from the March 24th post.
"A new life requires a death of some kind. Otherwise it is nothing new."
Death is agonizing. Emotionally, spiritually, physically.
The promise of the Resurrection remains. New Life.
