The Easter Lily. For many, the beautiful trumpet-shaped white flowers symbolize purity, virtue, innocence, hope and life—the spiritual essence of Easter.

History, mythology, literature, poetry and the world of art are rife with stories and images that speak of the beauty and majesty of the elegant white flowers. Often called the “white-robed apostles of hope,” lilies were found growing in the Garden of Gethsemane after Christ’s agony. Tradition has it that the beautiful white lilies sprung up where drops of Christ’s sweat fell to the ground in his final hours of sorrow and deep distress. Churches continue this tradition at Easter time by banking their altars and surrounding their crosses with masses of Easter Lilies, to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and hope of life everlasting.

The Easter Lily serves as a beautiful reminder that Easter is a time for rejoicing and celebrating.

The Easter Lily
Easter morn with lilies fair
Fills the church with perfumes rare,
As their clouds of incense rise,
Sweetest offerings to the skies.
Stately lilies pure and white
Flooding darkness with their light,
Bloom and sorrow drifts away,
On this holy hallow’d day.
Easter Lilies bending low
in the golden afterglow,
Bear a message from the sod
To the heavenly towers of God.

The Secret of Happiness

From God’s Little Lessons on Life

One day, feeling especially sad and lonely, a little girl named Sabrina took a walk through a meadow, where she noticed a small butterfly caught by its wings on a sharp thorn bush. Carefully, Sabrina released it. Suddenly, the butterfly changed into a lovely good fairy.

“For your wonderful kindness,” the good fairy said to Sabrina, “I will tell you the secret of happiness.” The fairy whispered something in her ear, and then vanished.

As Sabrina grew up, everyone loved to be around her, and often coaxed her to tell them the secret of her happiness. She would tell about the fairy, but never about the secret.

Finally, when she was very old and on her deathbed, Sabrina gathered the neighbors around her and told them, “I do not want the secret of happiness to die with me, and so I will tell it to you. “Tell us, tell us,” they pleaded.

“She told me that everyone, no matter how old or young, rich or poor, no matter how secure they seemed, would have need of me.”

The desire to be needed is one of humanity’s greatest needs. If you can find ways for people to be needed by others, you will find lasting happiness for yourself.

Not long ago, Carolina Clay posted a link to a 50's-60's jukebox music website

One of the songs there was The Wonder of You by Ray Peterson. I couldn't find a montage using this version on the net, so I made a quick one of my own for this blog.
