The daffodil is, according to teleflora.com, virtually synonymous with Spring. It symbolises rebirth and new beginnings. In England, because of its long association with Lent, it’sknown as the Lent lily.It is one of the earliest flowers to bloom in Spring.

In the run up to Easter this is a perfect opportunity to reflect on new beginnings. Jesus died on the cross so that all people could have a new beginning. The criminal hanging next to Jesus on the cross had done some terrible things in his life. His life was nearly over. But in an instant his life took a new turn. He was forgiven, restored and he had Heaven to look forward to.

No matter what your life has been like so far, no matter what you have done, Jesus is offering you a new beginning today. He can forgive you, restore you and give you the assurance of Heaven.

Romans 3:23 says, “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”

Jesus died on the cross so that you could be made right with Him. All you need to do is ask Him.
