There’s a small magazine table in the dining room that I like to change with the holidays.
At Christmas it held a tiny crèche.
This Easter the items on it remember scenes in the life of Jesus. The little Limoges box has a scene reminiscent of the fishing boats on the Sea of Galilee.
The bowl, pitcher, and towel remind us of the foot washing at the last supper where Christ gave his disciples a new commandment: Love one another as I have loved you.
The palms remember Jesus’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem. The eggs remind us of new life.
The empty cross signifies our resurrected Lord.
He is Risen indeed! Happy Easter.
Today would have been my mother’s 90th birthday — Easter Sunday.
