We just watched “The Passion of the Christ” as we do every year on Good Friday. I am reflecting on what Easter means to us. It’s not about the rabbits, the chocolate candy, the eggs, or baskets. It’s about what our Lord Jesus Christ did for us. No matter what we go thru in life, it is nothing compared to what Jesus went thru. Everyday I wake up thanking the Lord for a new day. I thank HIM for everything HE does for us. So thankful. :)
I wanted to share a blog I wrote last year. Right around this time.
Easter season 2008:
Something that happened this morning.....
Current mood: thankful
This morning after I came back from my walk, I started pruning my rosebushes. I had many cuts on my hands from those thorns. Some bled quite a bit. Then I started thinking...........If I had this many cuts on my hands and they hurt quite a bit, can you imagine what our Lord Jesus Christ went thru when the crown of thorns was placed on his forehead? (I ended up crying as I pruned my rosebushes)
Not only did they place that crown on his forehead, but he was also whipped, spit on, mocked, and lastly had to carry his own cross. He was cruxified, nails hammered in, etc. All of this happened to save us.
Everyone have a Blessed Easter. :)
