To those of you not feeling Easter this Sunday like we Christians do, I so sincerely and prayerfully hope He finds you somewhere, too. It doesn't have to be anywhere as glamorous as 23 Avenue George V (see image), it could be where you're sitting right now.
For all of you, I wish a Happy Easter, or Resurrection Sunday as some like to call it.........I prefer Happy Easter because it's just plain happier, it gives me pleasure to see lovely Easter things even though they're not Biblical, like colored eggs and flowers and chocolate bunnies! Who can understand the Trinity and the Love of God and the great sacrifice for us and not want to say "Happy ...SOMETHING?" It's a very happy day, the happiest occasion ever.
I'll be part of a group singing the song in the video below this morning....it has wonderful lyrics and builds to quite a crescendo of good music. I hope you take the time to listen and that you enjoy this:
"Then he (the thief on the cross who confessed he deserved being killed on the cross for the life he'd led) said to Jesus (as they both were being hanged), 'Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom. And Jesus said to him, 'Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise." Luke 23
He showed belief. That's all it took.
