I am always happy to return to my corner at the end of Lent! I am ready to move into the joy of the Easter season! Yesterday, this happened at my dinner table. The wine, which my mother-in- law accidently spilled went all over my daughter’s home-made butter lamb. The symbolism would have been enough there but the wine happened to have been bottled the day before by my brother, a hobby vintner. Upon tasting it, I told him it tasted like sacramental wine…little did I anticipate what would happen next.
Now some people will tsk tsk the apparent lack of reverence here but it isn’t that. Everyone at the table understands what was done for us on Good Friday…and everyone understands what is done for us in moments of laughter like this one on Easter. I see God in it all. I hope yours was a wonderful Easter. And in case you were wondering with some salt applied to it, the stain did come out!
