The blank computer screen stares at me expectently…I tell my daugher, I need to write something on my blog and can’t think of anything to say. She suggested to write memories of Easter and try to reference my book. Sigh. I rack my brain. Easter in my book…Well, there was the time I spent Easter alone – no not that memory. I didn’t expound on that memory in my book either. I did include the Easter I particpated in a huge play, but the day ended with my fiance (now husband) finding out he owed taxes and I returned my ring to contribute to the cause. He more than made it up to me later.
My good memories of Easter are recent: Our kids with their baskets, big dinners, Easter egg hunts, dressing special for church. Just thinking about it puts a smile on my face. Then I know what I’m going to say on my blog. I think of where I was and how God blessed me tremendously and brought me to now. Life is wonderful and God is exceptional. He filled in every gap, provided every need, and surrounded me with family and friends.
Like David, the Psalmist wrote, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want.” God is good. He died on the cross to save my sins and rose again conquering sin and death forever! That’s really what Easter is about. When I remember that, the rest is just jelly beans adding color around the white-chocolate cross. Happy Easter! May God richly bless you.
