easter services

a lot of people that i know got up on easter morning, prettied themselves all up, and went to a church service of some kind.

i certainly do not begrudge anyone their faith practice. i figure, if it works for you, if you feel closer to god, i am happy for you. i am glad that you have that piece (peace) in your life.

me? i just couldn't see going to sit in a building and remembering miracles from long ago when there are so many miracles to see and take part in right here, right now.

this? this is a spiritual home for me. this place is so calm, so filled with goodwill. this is where god dwells. in each inhabitant, each visitor, each flower, each leaf, each wave that meets the shore.

this is my peace. this is my faith. this was my easter service.

heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads. - henry david thoreau

Yellow blossoms against the blue sky. Beautiful! Actually all of your pictures are just lovely. I wish it was Spring here.
