Welcome home for Easter

I heard them before I saw them.
There was the sound of beating wings and an occasional call from a Canada Goose.
I don't know what they were expecting, but they didn't find water when they landed on the lake.
I haven't found a sprout among the little pots of seeds that I have planted. I made the pots as directed here.
But I didn't get around to planting until earlier this week.
There is nothing green anywhere in GriggsDakota. The Canada geese will get by somehow as they build nests, and lay eggs. Shortly after the ice leaves the lake, there will be goslings. New Life. It seems like part of the Easter miracle to me. Easter brings the opportunity for new life.
From the Manger
to the Last Supper.
Our Hope is in an Empty Cross and an Empty Tomb.
Christ has risen, He has risen, indeed!
Happy Easter, with Love from all of us in GriggsDakota.
