Let's be honest, there are probably a lot more people out there who think that Easter is all about the coming of the Easter bunny and hiding chocolate or colored eggs in their yard, but that is far from the truth.
It is about God's Son having died for our sins, so we could have eternal life and who rose on the third day. That is what Easter is; a celebration of the rising of Our Lord Jesus.
Knowing that, those chocolate and colored eggs, an Easter tree, and a bunny hopping around in the yard are totally insignificant.
Sure, it is fun for the kids and we participate in it when the need arises, but what we really celebrate and are thankful for is that Our Lord has risen.
I hope y'all have a very Happy Easter and don't forget the reason for this season!
