What is it that makes Easter, Easter?
Is it decorating the Easter tree?
Is it Easter eggs?
Is it colouring,
and dying the eggs?
Is it the Easter baskets filled with surprises?
Is it hot-crossed buns
for breakfast on Sunday morning?
Is it Easter dresses?
or other Easter treats?
Is it Easter Lilies, visits with family or Easter egg hunts?
To me, Easter is about new life. I was looking for words to express just how important Easter is, but the best I could find are familiar and simply stated:
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." John 3:16-17
I hope you have a very Happy and blessed Easter!
