I hope everybody had a very nice Easter Sunday. We saw family, had some egg hunts, ate some candy, went to church, ect. Very nice day overall.

Easter is a good time to get caught up in...well, THINGS. It's kinda like Christmas, a holiday based on God and turned into a commercial cascade of stuff. The bunnies, chocolate, the spring-themed toys, new shoes and dresses and all the STUFF, it's all for that one day that's really got...nothing to do with Easter.

It's really easy to forget Easter's meaning, about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. Then, three days later, he rose again. This shows that Jesus conquered death. Death couldn't hold him. It's an amazing miracle that the whole world should see that's hidden by meaningless bunnies and baby chicks, artificial chocolate shaped like eggs, and hard-boiled eggs dyed colors that somehow represent...dying on a cross?

Don't get caught up in commercialism. Whether it's Easter, Christmas, or whatever season, remember who you're celebrating: the God or the stuff?


  1. Good post.

    It's very strange, isn't it, the things we use to represent Easter. I guess the eggs might symbolize new life, but I'm not sure.

    Of course, representing the celebration of Christ's birth with a fat old man in a red suit?
    Come on....
