“The Easter lily is a biblical flower commonly associated with the resurrection of Christ.

In Christian tradition, the Easter lily signifies rebirth and a new beginning. It is said that beautiful white lilies sprang up in the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus wept in the last hours before he was betrayed by Judas. Another legend claims that the white lilies grew from the repentant tears shed by Eve upon her departure from Paradise.

The lily is mentioned frequently throughout the bible and serves today as a beautiful reminder of the significance of the Easter season. Easter lilies grace homes and churches each spring as a symbol of purity, joy, hope and life.”

But for us as Christians, He is risen!

 “We wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.”  Titus 2:13

Happy Easter Sunday! I’m joining Deidra Riggs over at The Sunday Community.

    • Andrea, you and me both. Since going on vacation two weeks ago, I have fallen off the blog wagon. I think we all just need a break from it all sometimes. Here’s hoping that you had a wonderful Easter!
