An Iris Easter Blessing

 Sudden inspiration sent me in search of filling an Easter basket for a dear friend.  At the store, the shelves were stocked with chocolate-foiled bunnies, creme-filled eggs, yellow marshmallow peeps, and M&Ms tinted in spring hues.  Among the assortment of goodies, a rare treat grabbed my heart.  

An Easter Blessing, in celebration, embraced two of my favorite things.  Chocolate Praying Hands and purple irises.   

In a hurry, I didn't realize it was a card, until later at home, while unpacking the goodies, it opened up to reveal a beautiful field of purple bearded irises.  Expansion of light.

I read the uplifting Easter Blessing:   

May you always have...

A sunbeam to warm you,

A moonshine to charm you,

A sheltering angel

so nothing can harm you...

Laughter to cheer you,

Faithful friends near you,

and whenever your pray,

Heaven to hear you."

 A blessing to joyfully share with you in celebration of Easter.  

For He has risen! 

Love and peace,
