We don’t live into our redemption very much, or get to win the fight over death. Jesus’ resurrection is a symbol and a promise that we are redeemed and that death’s dominion is not the final word. On Easter the Deep Magic breaks through. We proclaim and sing that love’s redeeming work is done — and then get back to that very work. – Sarah C Stewart
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child. – Marie Curie
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. – George Bernard Shaw
Brave men rejoice in adversity, just as brave soldiers triumph in war. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Alleluia! by Jeanne Lloyd
The Easter Egg We Need by Anne S. Howard
“There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.” ―
“This is a day of celebration!
Today, we are divorcing the past
and marrying the present.
and you will find God
in every room.
Today, we are divorcing resentment
and marrying forgiveness.
and God will find you
in every tune.
Today, we are divorcing indifference
and marrying love.
Drink, and play that tambourine
against your thighs.
We have so much celebrating to do!” ―
“Rejoice in small things and they will continue to grow”
