Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglican Church http://www.stjohnsashfield.org.au, Ashfield, New South Wales. Illustrates Jesus' description of himself "I am the Good Shepherd" (from the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 11). This version of the image shows the detail of his face. The memorial window is also captioned: "To the Glory of God and in Loving Memory of William Wright. Died 6th November, 1932. Aged 70 Yrs." (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Today is a new day , Its Easter day , a beautiful and sunny day here . I don’t need to use today . It is Easter day , as we are celebrating the resurrection of Christ . Christian or not we all need to realize a higher power in our live’s . I’m really into this day as a reborn person with new goals and a refreshed outlook on my life. Common elements found in most Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant religious Easter celebrations include baptisms, the Eucharist, feasting, and greetings of “Christ is risen!” and “He is risen indeed!”
I as a child always associated Easter with the end of winter, growing up in upstate New York we always had snow up till then most years. Its was always a hard stretch to wait till Easter to take certain Christmas gifts , like a new bike outside for the first time to enjoy. We as kids couldn’t wait until church was over for the enjoyment we found for the spring weather and enjoyment of these gifts . I think most of us had the indulgence of a visit from the Easter bunny as well as hiding brightly colored eggs usually colored the night before. When we were children we didn’t think why Easter was celebrated as we were all energized by the nicer weather and abundance of candy bunny’s .
Easter is also a celebration of spring , of new growth and fertility . I do hope you all get out enjoy your spring weather and hide an egg. I will for the first time in years actually enjoy this day with family. My name is Tim .. I’m a recovering addict and I feel the faith , Enjoy your Easter and thanks for the support…!!!
