Easter a time for new beginnings

Easter new beginnings

 

Whilst Easter is one of the holiest events on the Christian calendar it can also be a time for all of us to give thought to new beginnings.

In the northern hemisphere Spring is in the air and with Spring comes birth and life.  At this time, we can reflect on our life and what we would like to change.  Life is always evolving and so too our life and our experiences are ever changing.

Easter and the beginning of Spring is a good time to start anew.  We don’t have to settle for things that we don’t like.    Nothing is constant.  Nothing stays the same.

We can make positive changes in our life and even start over again.Click To Tweet

4 things about Easter & Springtime to encourage new beginnings

Resurrection

In the Christian faith, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is a symbol of new beginnings.  A victory over death.

Easter Eggs

Many ancient cultures viewed the egg as a symbol of life.  Animals hatch from the egg during springtime and new life abounds.

Easter Bunny

Because of their fertility, rabbits have been associated with Spring and new life.  The first Easter Bunny was introduced by the Germans as a symbol of the season.  This folklore arrived in the US with German immigrants in the 18th century.

Spring Flowers

Nothing says Spring like Spring flowers, daffodils are my favourites to herald in the Spring after a long winter.

    Fabulous post, Sue! I do need to make a few positive changes in my life and am taking this opportunity to do it. I have a tendency of overwhelming myself with tasks and am planning to consolidate, do less, and spend more time with my beautiful family.

    Thank you for the reminder of new beginnings. 🙂

      I’m like you Bren. I think we are ‘boots and all or not at all’ people and then we feel overwhelmed. I’m looking at cutting back more and enjoying life more. We are going on a cruise this month so that is a good start for me. Have a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by xx

      Oh thank you Donna! My daughter’s birthday actually falls on Good Friday this year. She will be 36 and I just can’t believe it! Time has flown she is now a mother to my gorgeous almost 3 year old grandson. Life is good for me. Happy Easter to you Donna and thanks for the comment. x

    Easter is certainly a time of new beginnings Sue – I think it’s such a crucial time as far as Christianity goes and a time we can all use to evaluate our lives and see what we’d like to renew or improve. I think that’s part of the idea of Lent – discarding something for a season to improve our life – I’ve never done the “giving something up for Lent” practice but I know some people do it every year and get real benefits from it.

      Yes I haven’t done Lent but I can see how people would feel it is a good way to show they can give up something and live without it. It is certainly the holiest times for Christians but I as my post says it can be a new beginning for everyone. Happy Easter Leanne!

      Yes well it does get chilly in Canberra Leanne. In Brisbane I’m lucky because it is a glorious time of year. You do have the beauty of the changing colours of the leaves though. Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by x

    We’ll be spending Easter this year travelling. We arrive back in Syd on the Saturday, and then will take 2 days to drive the last of our things, may car and (most importantly) our dog back to our new home. Then the new beginning can really begin.

    It’s always been the time for a good break from the busy-ness of first term in my working life in schools. As we celebrate at the beginning or in Autumn I know I have appreciated the cooling down and sunny days to enjoy being outside before winter sets in. Thank you for sharing the northern hemisphere perspective and of course, the reason for the season. Thanks for linking up for #lifethisweek 15/52. Next week is ‘A Special Memory’.

    Thanks for this lovely post, Sue. Thank you for sharing the Chggristians perspective as well. We in the Southern Hemisphere are heading into winter, but summer or winter, it would be wonderful if the Lord would send us rain for Easter! Have a great break.

      We just had Cyclone Debbie so parts of Australia have been flooded. I’m pleased you enjoyed the post and really Easter is the holiest of times for Christians so it would have been remiss of me not to include it. x

    Great idea, I haven’t thought about Easter in that way in a couple of years now. But it is a great time for new beginnings etc. #LifeThisWeek

      Yes although where I live it is autumn but still mild. I love the idea of Spring and new flowers bursting with colour. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day Kristin.

    I love spring. I’m not a religious person, but the fact that trees, grass and flowers can bloom anew after a harsh Maine winter is certainly miraculous! Longer days, more sunlight, warmth, that special color green that I only see in early spring–it’s energizing, uplifting and inspiring. A new beginning, indeed! Sweet post.

      I love Spring and Autumn Helena as I think they are both ‘gentle’ months. I do love seeing all the new life though with flowers coming back to life after winter. It fills me with happiness. Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by x
