One Last Look Back at Easter

Today, I need to hear the Easter message.  Today, this time between Ascension and Pentecost, let me cast a look back at Easter.

Let me remember the Easter flowers, so varied and beautiful:

Let me remember the cross, an tool of torture turned into an instrument of redemption:

Help me to turn my head in time to see normal sights in a new light:

Let me be wary--the crowds that love us at the beginning of the week can turn on us by the end.

But let me never forget that God can take the most brutal and ugly in humans and turn it into something that gleams eternal hope.
