Easter Eggs

"Nothing is so beautiful as spring - when weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush's eggs look little low heavens,
and thrush through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring the ear,
it strikes like lightning to hear him sing."
~Gerard Manley Hopkins

These eggs are of handpainted ceramic from Ecuador, South America. A close friend gave them to me during the time we lived there. I love their bright colours and smooth round shape.
I was looking at an egg the other day (don't ask me why...'cause I don't know) and thought about how eggs are so perfectly shaped. And so uniform. When I put the eggs into the egg tray in the refrigerator, they all feel pretty much the same.
Our world is ordered so wonderfully - God's creativity amazes me!
