Recent Reflections - April 2019: Resurrection Sunday (Easter)



This is the fourth Recent Reflections post of 2019.  Recent Reflections goes live the third Friday or Saturday of each month.  Each Recent Reflections post covers something that I'm reflecting on.  If you'd like to share a post with a similar theme, feel free to leave a comment with a link to your post, and I'll hop on over and leave a comment (and maybe some other readers will, too).

This month, I will be reflecting on Resurrection Sunday (Easter).



I have always loved holidays, especially Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.  When I was a child, it was because of all the presents, food, and family time (mostly the first 2 - just being real).  As I grew older, holidays evolved into being more enjoyable due to time with family, and eventually became times to reflect on what God has done in my life.

For Thanksgiving, I now take time to think about and share about all God has blessed me with - family, friends, knowledge, a home, food on the table, being healthy more than ill, etc.

For Christmas, I take time to reflect on Christ's birth, and we always make sure to read the Christmas Story so that our children understand the miracle of the season, not the commercialism.

But Easter?  Oh, Easter is my favorite in terms of reflecting on what God has done.  Easter is the time for remembering that Christ died, but He didn't stay dead - He rose again!  It is that fact that brings us hope!  Christ conquered death, and in that, brought us eternal life if we trust in Him as our Savior!  {If you are curious about or want to know more about trusting Jesus as your Savior, click here.}  That is definitely something to get excited about!

This Easter, take a moment away from the commercialism.  Forget about the Easter eggs, the chocolate bunnies, the Peeps, the Easter egg hunts - forget about all of it.  Just take a moment to think about how much God loves you.  He sent His Son to die for you, and then He conquered death for you so that you could live forever with Him some day if you accept His sacrifice for you.  My friends, that is what Easter is all about and what true love is.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." - John 15:13 (KJV) 

I'm so glad I can call Jesus my Friend!


I truly hope this post has been a blessing to your heart, or at the least made you stop and think a little.  What has God done in your life lately to bless you?  What are you reflecting on?

Have a wonderful weekend!
