I don't have anything profound or original to say, but I didn't want to let the day pass without saying Happy Easter!!!
When I was a child, I much preferred Christmas, with all the fun and excitment. As I've lived a little longer and learned a little about the ups and downs of life--experienced illness and pain, lived through the consequences of my own sins and those of others, grappled with my weaknesses and frailties, and lost loved ones, I have come to appreciate Easter and all it means.
I still love Christmas, but the promises inherent in Easter mean a great deal to me, and mean more with each passing year. The hope of internal peace in this turbulent world and, especially, the promise of being with my loved ones forever are more precious than I can say.
Both the great holidays that people celebrate this time of year, Easter and Passover, have to do with deliverance from bondage, with freedom, and hope. In Christ, I have found those things, for which I am eternally grateful.
Wherever you are, and however you celebrate the holiday, whichever holiday you celebrate, I wish you peace, joy, and love!
I thought I'd include some of my favorite Easter songs.
