Oh, to be in England
Now that April's there,
And whoever wakes in England
Sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England - now!

 

So wrote Robert Browning in Italy remembering the lovely awakening that happens with the coming of Spring in England.

In spite of the very varied weather we have been experiencing this Spring it does the heart good to see the daffodils ‘fluttering and dancing in the breeze’ and we hope the strong winds will not scatter the cherry blossom before we get the chance to

appreciate it.

Wonderful as it is there is something still more marvellous for the believer. EASTER! Chocolate eggs and bunnies aside, jolly and acceptable as they are, there is one central truth......

Jesus rose from the dead and the empty tomb promises eternal life for all who believe in him. Allelujah.    Peter Brewer
