I donno why but after having kids, Easter has become extra special for me. Proof is that last night errr well this morning I slept at 3AM but woke up 745AM and hurriedly dragged everyone to get ready for church. We made it just in time.
And since last year our family would make Easter eggs with the kids but I think on our second attempt this year is still a major fail with the food coloring seemingly not having plans of drying up.
When I was young we commemorate Lent, specifically the Holy Week by being quiet. We watch the washing of the feet and 7 last words on TV or sometimes go to church to see those. We only eat fish. We take a bath before 3PM on Good Friday. I liked lent not because there’s no school or work but because of the quietness.
It was different after getting married because my husband is a non-Catholic Christian so he’s more on celebrating the passion of Christ because we need to enjoy the gift of life and forgiveness of sins that God has given (NOTE: that is my interpretation of what he’s been telling me. If it is wrong we can always discuss 😁)
Happy Easter again dear friends and I leave you with one of my if not my most favorite bible verse: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13
May we be filled with love that brings peace and genuine happiness – from family, friends, colleagues, strangers (the good kind of stranger of course 😁)
