Easter

This morning as I wondered into the kitchen, I had a sadness because there were no children at my house this week to color or hunt Easter Eggs and I had no reason to buy Cadbury or peanut butter eggs for baskets. This was a the first time in over 40 years that we didn't have little ones at our house sometime during Easter. Times change and as our children and grandchildren grow up, they are starting traditions of their own and we are glad for this but it does leave a vacant spot.

But Hey.....This is Easter Morning. It is not a time to be sad but a time to rejoice a Risen Savior. That is what it is all about...Not candy eggs, not the Easter Bunny or the Easter Eggs but it is about The Risen Savior and an Empty Tomb.

As I rejoice in this, my heartstrings sing and I know that all is well. Christ is risen and He is in my heart today. If you do not know about a Risen Savior, read through the Gospels. I love the story of Christ in the book of John. As Jesus was crucified, and resurrected, He sent a Helper, The Holy Spirit, who lives Today. Thank You Father in the Name of Jesus who has made it possibly for my salvation.

Happy Easter. We didn't color eggs either but had a great day.

Happy Easter! Sorry you were suffering from "empty nest." And in the spring too!
