Winter’s wrath has left cruel reminders across America.  Images of historic flooding can still be seen weeks after the rains first started coming.  Homes and businesses have been destroyed.  Loved ones have perished.  Entire communities have been wiped off the earth.  It will take years for those who have been impacted to recover.

A few days ago I glanced skyward to see the white trails of two jetliners.  They had intersected,  forming a giant cross in the sky.  It was refreshing to see—majestic white clouds against a beautiful blue sky.   What a perfect prelude to spring and the upcoming Easter season!  It is also a reminder of scripture found in the Bible.

“. . . and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory.”  (Matthew 24:30 NAS).

As we prepare for the Easter season, my hope is that all mankind will find healing and new life in Jesus, the One who sacrificed His life so that we may have life everlasting.
