Easter. The time of year when flowers begin to blossom, bunnies emerge as the number one pet, and ordinary white eggs are transformed into meticulous works of art. Men, women, boys, and girls dress in their very best, often posing for Easter photographs before Sunday dinner, knowing that everyone may become a little disheveled after eating a bountiful holiday meal. Children enjoy hunting for eggs that hold a multitude of treasures, secretly hidden by the Easter Bunny himself. Parents’ eyes fill with delight as children sort through the goodies carefully chosen and displayed in a colorful basket filled with plastic “grass” in a rainbow of colors. Many people will steal away for a quiet afternoon nap, having risen before daybreak to attend a sunrise service in their community. Easter is a day for family, a day for rest, a day to remember what Christ did for you and me. But I want to ask you, should Easter come just once a year?
In Christ's Love,
