IMG_8793Although looking through the window I have to think twice about which Holiday is it now… The snow coming down like crazy would suggest Christmas… The calendar stubbornly shows April… Who knows, maybe some wicked leprechauns are playing a trick on me…

Still it has to be Easter… We went to the church to bless our food (traditionally we put salt&pepper, and all the produce we’d eat on Sunday – so: kielbasa, ham, bacon, egg, cheese, and baked goods 🙂 ), IMG_8814afterwards we went to the church, to pray by Jesus’ grave…  To stop for a moment and try to realize how enormous must be His Love… I mean, one thing is to die for someone – but die like this? In such humiliation, surrounded by such hatred… To be spat on, pushed, beat up, stripped naked… And He did not complain. Did not say a word of protest…

IMG_8824Coming out of the church and approaching our car in the parking lot, I spotted something a few cars away from us. Few guys, dressed in traditional outfits, were setting up some sort of a fence. Like a play pen, but made of wood. As we came closer to check it out (of course pushed by my curiosity, and do not say it killed a cat 😛 ) – we noticed… sheep!!! 3 adult and 5 tiny ones!!! Oh how cute!!!!  How heartwarming view! 🙂 Symbolic also…IMG_4882

And to think that last year, Easter looked more like this… Warm, sunny, beautiful… sigh…

Well, Jesus will rise again tonight. Snow or no snow.

He comes and rolls the tombstones that we put right at the gates of our hears. The stones we put there, and which are blocking the streams of His grace, not letting them flood us with His Love…

Long time ago, I’ve read somewhere that if we only knew, if we realized how big is God’s love to us, we’d never sin again…  Well. How far are we from that realization…
