It's Easter weekend! I love Holidays but I love Easter more than Christmas. I believe it is in part because of SPRING! All the flowers starting, bunnies, eggs, comfort food, family and of course for those of us who believe HOPE! Good Friday - never really think of it as good. A day to be reminded that He died for our sins. Good in the fact that that It is a reminder, so many children only think of Easter as chocolate and eggs and fun - with marketing the way it is - it's hard not to - I myself am on my way out to get my 19 year old a choc. egg or two ;-)) He is aware of what Easter stands for. I'd like to add Storm and I do not agree on religion. We have different opinions. THIS is o.k. Why, because we have a mutual respect and LOVE for each other. What ever it takes to make you happy and keep you a good person, whatever you believe - who can argue with that - or WHY ? Yesterday I blocked someone. I think I've done that only 2 times. I posted a quote about Jesus and someone commented a nasty comment. It was simply RUDE. I sent him a message telling him it was rude and again his reply was just negative. I don't get it.
I would NEVER condemn anyone for what they believe in if it is helping them survive this life and is Not hurting anyone. I thought after I should not have blocked but I just did not have the energy to deal with such a negative person first thing in the a.m., but really - why would I want to surround myself with people like that? - Believe in what you want but ignorance is not having an open mind to let others have this right also. What angered me most is that person really has no idea of what my God is to me.
He's not up there in a throne throwing bolts of lightening.. (in my cartoonist mind perhaps- some times) God is good. Good in humans who help each other, encourage, support, lift, love and TRY to make a positive difference.
God is everything I see. ALL the beauty that is EVERYWHERE! Now with the internet we get to see beauty from all over the world! Share dreams and hopes and encourage and inspire. Yet, others given the same chance and all they can do is comment negative.
He questioned my faith. I question his lack of compassion/respect for others.
If you have no faith you have no hope.
Time to go get a special bunny for my boy and my honey. A few tulips and that's all!
Easter will be our time spent chatting, laughing, meals and family time. A time to celebrate LOVE., New LIFE (all around us now!) & HOPE. The bunnies are just a bonus ;-) xoxx
