 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!

How does your family make Easter meaningful?

Do you participate in Lent?

According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…

I grew up in a church culture that did not focus on the Resurrection at Easter. It was all about fancy dresses, egg hunts, and the Easter Bunny.

(I know, I KNOW, it doesn’t make sense to me either. But I didn’t know any different.)

…to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

I am so thankful that my children are growing up in the shadow of the cross and the light of the resurrection.

They are learning that Christ is at the center of everything we do.

Though you have not seen Him, you love Him.

When it comes to holidays, like Easter, I do not have religious childhood traditions to pass on to my kids.

We have fun adding new things each year (and it is double the fun since it is new for my parents as well.)

Though you do not now see Him, you believe in Him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

We are not Catholic, and our church does not follow the Liturgical calendar, but I find that there are many things to glean from others.

I am busily browsing resources, trying to map out the coming weeks.

He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you who through Him are believers in God…

I would love for my readers to chime in and share.

How do you guide your family to the Cross and celebrate the Resurrection?

Do your family’s traditions reflect your childhood, or are you also walking a new path?

…who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

And this word is the good news that was preached to you.

I Peter 1:3-5, 8-9, 20-21, 25

 

the Really Bad, Really Good Friday

This was my Facebook status earlier today:

Kids are cleaning . . . Redemption Songs is blaring . . . the Son is shining . . . it’s a               beautiful Holy day!

Doesn’t it sound like we had little bluebirds helping us fold the towels?

Here is a glimpse of our reality earlier today:

someone was hungry . . . someone was tired . . . the two yr old was wired . . . kids bickered . . .    I threatened to turn the music off if it didn’t quieten down . . .

Yet my Facebook status still remained true.

Our day was good or bad depending on where you focused.

We chose to focus on the Holy and had a lovely day in spite of ourselves.

The same can be said of those sacred events that took place so long ago:

the betrayal . . . the abandonment . . . the pain . . . the suffering . . . the burden of our sin . . .

There was nothing good on that day.

And yet there was everything Good on that day.

I am eternally grateful that there was a Really Bad, Really Good Friday!
