You know the drill. All the leaves fall off the apple tree in the Fall. The tree looks dead all winter. But then tiny specs of green appear again in the Spring. Before long, the pretty, delicate, pink buds are revealed and then blossom. It’s kind of a relief when I see the apple blossoms. It’s a reassurance that the tree is not only alive but healthy and it will again fulfill the purpose God gave it. The blossoms make me smile.
We all have a purpose whether we know what it is or not. I believe it is through serving others (family, friends or strangers) that our purpose is revealed. Small, kind, acts or words that make someone smile renews hope. That, I believe, is the message of Easter. Jesus Christ gives old things new life and purpose.
And a fun time was had by all in Tillicum Campground.
We only had a few campers with children but they were hiding Easter eggs – plastic, thank goodness! We’d have seagulls, crows and racoons everywhere if they’d been real eggs.
The Tillicum Easter Bunny hid some eggs too! He had to help an adult find one by kicking it off his path and out onto the grass.
Notes from my Workamping Journal:
I appreciate return customers. It says something about the job we are doing. However, one repeat customer has been bad about leaving cigarette butts on the ground. So, when I saw them and saw a butt not an hour after their arrival, I needed to do something. For some reason, I never see the people. So, I got a plastic Folger’s can, put sand in it and a cigarette butt and left it by their chair. After they were gone, all that was left was the butt can – no butts on the ground!
