Happy Easter

Happy Easter, everyone!

For those who don’t believe, feel free to take my blessings for you to have a wonderful day.  May you be blessed with good health, and prosperity.  May you surround yourself with friends and family, eat healthy, enjoy the outdoors and save me a chocolate egg or two.

For those of you who are Christian like me, let us not forget our faith and what Easter means to us.  Dear Lord, I pray:

O Lord,

As the world sings triumphant cries to heaven over death that You conquered, help us, Lord, tomorrow as well, when the dresses are put away and the candy is all eaten and on with life we go let us not forget.

The celebration of Your Resurrection over death is a celebration of life that should continue well beyond the sunrise service and the music, rehearsed for days prior; it is beyond the sign of spring, beyond the lily, beyond new lambs grazing in open fields.

Resurrection is a daily celebration over fear; man’s greatest and most powerful enemy. Fear of tomorrow, fear of our yesterdays, fear of what shall become of our young, our old, our unborn. Resurrection is replacing fear with physical action.

This alone, the most touching and profound of Your signs that fear is dead and belief in You brings, not just hope but life.

What better living parable could You have brought? All fear death. All. Even in the garden, You took on our fear if for only moments, it was as real as our fears can be real and You knew then that this single enemy must be destroyed.

And, You sacrificed Your life, leaving those who had been comfort, and follower; You left them behind, to conquer fear.

I shall cling to this now, and the tomorrows given me.

Peace and Thanksgiving lifted unto You.

  1. Happy Easter to you!
    Through Christ we have overcome fear of any sort. We’ve got the victory, even over death. We live a day at a time with both hope and gratitude.
    The resurrection goes beyond the season to every single day.
    Many cheers!
