I LOVE Easter. It’s right up there with my favorite holiday of the year, Thanksgiving. The only reason Thanksgiving is at the top of the list is because there’s lots of good food and I get to see my family. Easter is a very close second!
Easter is incredible. Of course, I love Easter for what it means; Christ is risen from the dead! But I also love Easter for many other reasons. Just this week the weather became a bit more pleasant. It was almost like our neighborhood came alive with the better weather; kids playing, dogs barking, basketball in the cove… And yes, as a pastor, you have to love Easter. I have a wonderful opportunity to preach to many people who need to know Christ on Easter Sunday.
I guess Easter reminds me that I have so many things in my life to be thankful for; my faith, my family, my church, my friends and my life! I hope you have a great Easter!
