Words from the prophet Isaiah always seem to me to be as appropriate for Easter as for Christmas when they are normally read.
"For behold darkness shall cover the earth and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you and His glory will be seen upon you." (Isaiah Chapter. 60, v. 2)
As we wait for Easter Day the darkness closes in. Gethsemane and Good Friday are like the valley bottom! Then suddenly the light of the risen Lord Jesus appears, dispelling the darkness, shining in and through our hearts and lives.
I took this photo one misty morning. Darkness in the valley bottom, the sun rising over the hill behind the trees, and the mist clearing to reveal the world in all its beauty.
My 'training walks' have been times of inspiration and quietness as I have sought out new ways and followed waymarks on local footpaths.
