I remember very well as a child my Mother taking us shopping for our Easter dresses and shoes. It was always so exciting because it wasn’t something we did all the time. It was a very special occasion to go buy a new anything.
I often tell people that my parents did not give me everything I ever wanted. But they always gave me everything I ever needed. I can’t even imagine trying to raise five kids, but they did it and I think they did it well!
My parents knew exactly what I needed…
What they gave me was the way to a relationship with GOD. They took me to church and showed me the way to believe and the way to pray. I’m so blessed that I had / have parents that cared enough to do that for me. They took the time out of their busy lives to provide me the way to a relationship with GOD. They gave me a place to come home.
I always loved going to church, but Easter Sunday was the best!
It was the most special Sunday in our new shoes and new dresses. I remember everyone being so happy and in good spirits, wearing beautiful flower corsage and bright colored hats.
I remember shaking hands and the smiles on everyone’s faces.
As a child I thought they were just excited about the Easter egg hunt, like I was.
But when I accepted the Lord as my Savior and I developed my relationship with GOD I figured out what it was. I figured out why everyone is SO happy on Easter.
The rejoicing is because JESUS IS ALIVE!
GOD gave his only SON to die on the cross for me. Me the sinner. Just because he loves me. He guaranteed me everlasting life and love by his side for believing in him and accepting him as my savior.
John 3:16 For GOD so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son so that whosoever believeth in him shall not parish but have everlasting life.
That’s what my Parents gave me for Easter.
I hope you and your loved ones have a beautiful weekend and a very Happy Easter.
Thank You GOD For Loving Us!
