Easter Lambs

On our drive through Illinois, we passed, on the right side of the highway, a red hand-lettered sign, "Easter Lambs."
           EASTER LAMBS         
  Ahead, on the left side of the road, beyond one of the many small farms that dot the Midwest, was a field full of lambs.  Maybe one hundred of them, close together in a small field. They were lying down, strolling around, nosing each other, curled up in little balls, sitting, waiting.  Did they know what they were waiting for?

            The field will soon be empty.

"The next day he saw Jesus coming to him, and said, 'Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!'"         John 1:29
