SPRINGTIME AND EASTER: THE TRIUMPH OF HOPE
Easter cheers to you, awesome readers!
Spring gives the Easter holiday a special meaning. We are in the season when the earth goes through the process of rebirth after the long deathly cold of winter, and Easter brings the same message of triumph against death.
It is the reaffirmation that holding on to hope in our hearts definitely transmits us to a much brighter tomorrow.
In the same breath, the seasons move from the despair of winter to the hope of spring. The soft colors of green and pink begin as the sun gently begins to reign, making the days run longer than the dark. Although it is the time for sneezing because of allergies, what could be more delightful than basking in the warm sun?
Easter is often times associated with Easter eggs and bunnies and rabbits…all symbols of the start of a new life.
Ancient peoples in Egypt, Persia, and India believed that the world began as a huge egg. Old cultures attribute egg as a symbol of new life and rebirth.
Our OSM! cover this week is May Tumulak-Durano who, as a nurse and leader, is very much into the service of giving hope to a new life to patients and children in distress.
We shall be inspired too by the cheerful elegance of Petite Abella-Maglasang who dresses up success as she goes about her day in the corporate world.
The Tales from the Traveling Fool pinches us with the legend of Echo. It is an American Indian folk tale by the Ute tribe which tells of the desperation of a woman, turned humorous.
So read on, dear ones. Remember, there is so much to hope for in life!
