#FOTD- Rose Blossom & Easter Musings

#FOTD- 4-12-20– Yellow Rose

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.”

SD Gordon

Happy Easter everybody! For me, it’s a lovely season commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ following his greatest sacrifice, his crucifixion. I loved seeing all the communities’ photos of cute bunnies, delicious meals, blooming gardens, adorable children, smiling selfies, decorative eggs, dancing, singing, beautiful spring fashions, hugs, and absolute pure joy flooding my morning!

This past Holy Week has been unlike any other. It’s been a period of reflection, finding the light within as darkness looms. Pope Francis shares, “Creativity of love can overcome isolation”. An outpouring of love from people of all backgrounds has been shared around the world despite social distancing.

Cybersecurity doesn’t take a break. Thankful for my new raise during my 6-month evaluation at work, I decided to give back by donating Doctors Without Borders as my time to volunteer has been limited. Health systems all around the world are taking a battering, and healthcare workers are working tirelessly around the clock. Thank you health heroes. Thank you supermarket employees, food service & utility workers, first responders, delivery drivers, who are also on front lines.

“May we be a people who learn to grieve deeply from within our souls and find comfort in knowing that of one thing I am perfectly sure, God’s story never ends with ashes.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Have a wonderful Easter! Enjoy the precious moments!
