Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.  ~S.D. Gordon

There is always a special feeling in the air at Eastertime. I think that I will be forever amazed and always so very overjoyed by how, at the very same time that we celebrate the resurrection of Christ, winter is transforming to spring, bringing new life to the earth around us.

You can smell it. You can smell the earth coming to life, and see the buds on the trees, and the little blossoms of white, pink, yellow, and purple springing up in some of the most unlikely, but so very charming places…

And you can’t help but feel it. You can feel the excitement of life… the birds singing, the occasional insect buzzing by, or the conversation of frogs in the early morning hours…

Pressed for time? Go to your local bakery or grocery store bakery, and ask them for some cupcakes that haven’t been decorated. Even more pressed for time? They’ll be more than happy to sell you a quart of frosting. I’ll be the first to admit, I know about these things first hand!

The decorated cupcakes in a basket of Easter grass would be just as beautiful!
