Sunday is the big day when Jesus rose from his tomb and met Mary on the road - alive!! Can you imagine how she felt? How fortunate I feel that I have Jesus in my life. There is a hymn called "What a Friend We Have in Jesus". It is a familiar one and it sort of falls into the same category as "Jesus Loves Me" and "All Things Bright and Beautiful", but the other day we sang it in church and I really heard the lyrics and the second line is "What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer". I'm not someone who believes that God will solve my problem for me, but it is nice to share the burden, to put everything to Him so He can walk with me, or more often I am asking Him to walk with others who need some extra care. Because He sent his son Jesus to live on Earth, He gets it, He understands suffering. As we celebrate Easter, we will certainly be enjoying a few chocolate eggs, but it is also a great time to remember the core beliefs of Christians.
Regardless of whether you are celebrating the Risen Christ, or just a visit from the Easter Bunny, Happy Easter to you! I hope you have some nice time with family and that you'll see the sun wherever you are.
See you back here on Tuesday after our long weekend.
