The Gospel told through the eyes of a child…
This Easter Sunday there will be a throng of little girls wearing brightly coloured dresses, and magnificent hats on the heads of their mothers and grandmothers as Church pews are full to capacity. There will be plenty of baskets bursting with chocolate eggs and plush bunnies, yes – even at my house the chocolate will flow!
Amidst all that fun… and trust me, we have fun in this house… we need to remember…
That Easter weekend is about more than just those things we can do or buy to have a good time or to make us look great. Even more than the traditional family dinner followed by the Sunday afternoon nap. It’s more than all of that put together.
Good Friday is the day that Jesus died upon the cross. Easter Sunday is the day that He rose from the dead. Death, hell and the grave could not hold him!
Easter is about rebirth, and redemption and about sacrifice!
Jesus is not dead. He has risen!
Happy Easter Everyone!
