Dear Saint Andrew’s family and friends,
Our Lenten season culminated Sunday with a beautiful celebration of the resurrection of our Lord. For many it has been a season of preparation. For some, 40 days without “chocolate” and still for others a time of hope that this world that has been so disrupted by a virus for the past year, might soon be returning to a new normal. For me this Easter has brought new-found joys. I can feel it with the emergence of daffodils, peonies, and yes, even the dandelions. I have seen it in the expectant faces of children hunting for eggs, and in the smile of my 96-year-old mother as she was called to dinner with visiting family. There are so many ways that God shows himself to us each day if we only take the time to see and feel his presence.
As we move ahead to Pentecost, I hope each of you will experience many reminders of the love of God and the many blessings shared with each of us.
