Freedom! 

It all started with a bunny on the road …

A few years ago,  as I was walking the beast, I almost experienced a shoulder dislocation when a bunny hopped out from under a hedge, giving the beastie the impression of fast food.

A number of weeks later, I drove down the same road and counted seven bunnies … they had certainly been reproducing like … rabbits.

Then there was the pasture of horses chowing down on the fresh, green spring grass and clover. One, wearing blinders, hopping around as if so do a dance to welcome spring.

My daughter showed me a video recently of cows being released to the pasture for the first time of the spring, and they ran and danced in such a way as to delight any who watched.

The animal shelters are filled to the brim with newborn kittens and puppies.

The ponds swimming with ducklings.

And soon the well-spun nests of miniscule spiders will empty of their tiny creepy crawlies.

Spring brings a feeling of freedom to all who are emerging out of the wombs, or emerging out from the tombs of the winter.

According to the free dictionary, freedom is “the condition of being free of restraints.”

When the Bible speaks of freedom, it is speaking of the life available, through the sacrifice of Christ, who emancipated (freed) us from the restraints (the laws) in order to be truly free, forever.

That is what the Easter season is all about. 

There is no real freedom without the sacrifice made by Christ, on the cross.

It was his emerging from the tomb that gave new life to us.

Spring is coming, and the reminder of the freedom birthed in us, through his laborious pains.
