For a quick update, approximately six weeks after my bypass surgery everything is going well, the incisions are healing and I am getting along just fine, still under the no lifting over five pounds restriction but that is to be expected.
Easter Sunday is an important day for Christians. This is the day of the ressurection of Christ. We all were taught this growing up and it is an important part of our lives, it brings us the promise of new hope and joy.
The celebration of Easter is a blessed event shared with friends and family, we share meals, fellowship, and for some one of the few days when you actually go to church to hear the lessons that teach us that Jesus Christ has risen.
Now for the flip side we bring in the Easter Bunny, he brings colored eggs, chocolate, and smiles to the faces of children everywhere, how many of us prepare for and look forward to the annual Easter egg hunt with the kids? and how many stuff those baskets to overflowing just for the smile on the face of someone you love.
A lot of homes do not allow the fantasy of the Easter Bunny for fear it will overshadow the teachings of Christ, and others forget the ressurection because they may deem the lessons too deep and or boring for the kids, I say why can't we have both?
Remember the story of Jesus by celebrating Easter in the manner you choose, but at the same time make it fun for the kids with a little fantasy thrown into the mix, I just bet that the little ones will retain more than you think about the story of Jesus when they are having fun.
It should never be a choice between Jesus and the Easter Bunny, this is not a difficult choice for any of us really, I just think there is room for a little bit of fun to go along with the teachings that we all need to hear.
I know my eyes lit up when I saw my Easter basket this morning, Happy Easter to you all.
Did you color eggs this year?
