A time of Celebration, Easter eggs, Easter bunnies, roast dinner with the family … if you’ve given up chocolate for Lent, the time has come to indulge once more!
Such celebrations are far removed from that first Easter Sunday morning. Very early, at dawn, one or two women came to the tomb where they had seen their beloved Jesus’ body placed and a heavy stone rolled in front. They came with spices to anoint his body, with heavy legs and beating hearts in case they were caught; they were deeply grieving the loss of their Master and friend.
When they got there, the stone was rolled away. An angel was present. What a terrible shock!! They ran to meet their friends and, on the way...met Jesus. What a surprise! It must have left them speechless. He said to go and tell the others that he was alive.
Easter; the day of Jesus’ Resurrection. A day of new life which is why we give and receive eggs - within which a real egg contains the potential for new life.
Jesus’ Resurrection gives us a sure and certain hope of our rising to new life when we come to the end of our earthly lives.
Definitely a season to celebrate!!
