Artificial Easter

Tis the season of the 'artificial Easter.'  Bunnies and colored eggs, candy and decorated baskets are just a few of the things about Easter that has absolutely nothing to do with Christ's sacrifice on the cross for our salvation.

Please don't go running off thinking I don't enjoy the beautiful colors and the tasty sweets, because I do.  I just get a bit saddened that there are so many people out there that either don't know or don't acknowledge what the true meaning of Easter is all about.

Cher you know I haven't even had time to get my Easter stuff out and it doesn't bother me a bit as I know that is not what it is all about.

What a privileged to know the Christ of Easter!

I have been reading a great book- A thousand Gifts- by Ann Voskamp- don't know if you have heard about it but it is excellent. Bringing Christ in every moment of our lives by the act of Thanksgiving in everyday moments. I am going to do a little post on it for Sunday.
