Sonny the Bunny is filled with fear.
He's worried he can't get the eggs out this year.
He left California and came to Missouri
where the folks are nice, but the weather is phooey.
Just when he thought that Spring should be sprung,
it snowed like crazy, as if Winter had begun.
It snowed so hard, it blanketed the farm
with drifts so high, they nearly hid the barn.
Poor Sonny struggled through it to get to the pens,
but it was so high, he couldn't find the hens.
He shoveled and shoveled, and then sat down to cry,
"Why I'll have a heart attack," he thought, "and probably die."
Gloom and doom filled his heart with dread,
as he thought of the hens, which he figured were dead.
Suddenly an angel appeared in white light,
She said, "Get a grip, Sonny. The hens are all right.
I moved them a little, and blew away the snow,
and made it so warm, they didn't even know
that we had a blizzard all day and all night,
for all they saw was a wonderful sight.
I filled all their feeders with good stuff to eat
and their quota of eggs has never been beat.
So, the next time you're worried and filled with fear.
Remember that though you don't see them, angels are near.
You'll have your eggs and the children will love it.
So, take all that fear, little bunny, and shove it.
God loves you more than you'll ever know.
Leave your worries behind. Let your gratitude show."
And sure enough, when Sonny finally got to the hens,
their nests were full of eggs, and his face full of grins.
He gathered them up and painted them bright,
working all through that day and into the night.
So when Easter dawns bright and beautiful this year,
we will rejoice that God casts out fear.
He loves us and holds us in the palm of His hand,
and sends out His angels all over the land.
Sometimes we see them, but mostly we don't.
We have to believe. Some will and some won't.
Easter is God's promise of love and redemption,
offered to all without a single exception.
Eggs and chicks all tucked in a nest
remind us that on Easter, God gave us His best.
And with this greeting, we send our best too,
with much love and many hugs to you.
