Easter And Mother’s Day 2011

We celebrate Easter tomorrow, and I see on the calendar that Mother’s Day is May 8, 2011.

After Enola, my mother, was called Home, I took great comfort in watching the perennials begin again.   The Saturday inbetween Good Friday and Easter was a metaphor for me.  It pictured this time of temporary separation.  The grief was hard but grew into new love and faith. 

For a thousand years

in thy sight

are but as yesterday

when it is past,

and as a watch in the night.

Psalm 90: 4 (KJV)
