Part of me is sad that I won't have the opportunity to take part in some of these Easter traditions, but another part of me is really thankful for this time to avoid the distraction of all of the "stuff" that really has nothing to do with what Easter really means. The mourning of Christ's death and the celebration of his Resurrection. He died so we could live, that's incredible stuff.
Much better than a cadebury egg in my opinion (and I'm a girl that LOVES my cadebury eggs)
So when you are searching through your plastic eggs and tearing though your Easter basket, take pause and remember what this holiday really represents; the greatest gift that was ever given happened this weekend; Christ's death on the cross, for US.
I don't live near a Hobby Lobby (DAMN) but this store not only is Ah-mazing (according to my buddies that live near one); but they are also a company that is deeply rooted in Christian faith. Each year for Christmas and Easter they take out a full page ad in each newspaper in which they advertise. Here is the one for this year.
Something to meditate on....
