....Happy Easter everyone.
As a kid, I knew what Easter was about. My parents made sure to let us know the true meaning behind Holidays like this and at the same time made it possible for us to enjoy the fun things about being a kid ...the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and so on. We knew. And it made it that much better. Though I admit going to church on Easter Sunday was the last thing I wanted to do back then. I wanted my Easter egg hunt and candy - though I did love getting to wear a really pretty dress.
But these days, this Holiday is so much more. Means so much more. I am truly amazed by the sacrifice that was made on a hill for me, for me and everyone ever on Earth since, before and after. It amazes me to think that maybe while it was being made, Jesus thought of me. He knew how much I would sin in my life and how much I would be unable to master it on my own. And he loved me enough to die for me. Just like he did for all of you.
How Amazing is that. How loving is that? That kind of love is just.... wow.
I want to love like that too.
Happy Easter Everyone.
