Easter Morning

Yes, that's what this morning is... and while I should be in the shower and worrying about what i'm actually going to wear, i'm here instead blogging. Oops. Anyways, I thought I would share a few thoughts on Easter. Reflection if you will.

I love that we have the same holidays every year. I used to think that as I got older they would become more and more monotonous, but I have found just the opposite. I see that each time a holiday, like Christmas or Easter comes around, I actually am able to stop and think about the reasons that we celebrate them to begin with. It's a time to remember all the reasons I live my life the way I do.

As much as it makes me cry when I actually think about what Jesus did on the cross, I find myself returning to that place of rememberance every year. Last night we went to a passion play and upon seeing the sight of Jesus on the cross a few thoughts ran through my mind. I thought that this is kind of sick that we so often reenact such a gruesome story... but then I realized, that what Jesus did was horrible. And we need to be harshly reminded at times...

Jesus death on the cross was so much more than death. In fact, it's not even about death. It was all about life. He died so that we could live! and the best part about the whole thing was that he didn't even stay dead! How awesome is that!? I'm not serving some dead guy in a tomb. Nope, I'm serving the one who rose from the grave on the third day and is still alive in my heart!

Enjoy this glorious Easter morning!
