      On the 21st of April, we shall celebrate Easter; Easter is a time in which Christians such as myself shall celebrate the fact that Jesus Christ has defeated death when he has risen from the dead. For Christians such as myself, it is the most blessed time in all of the year in the calendar…
Easter is also a part of Spring, which happens to be a time of renewal; Babies of the human and animal kind are born, mental lives are to be straightened out, and we smell the most beautifully blessed flowers and fauna that the Lord God has ever given us and has blessed us with.
Easter is supposed to be a time to offer our praises to the One who has given His very own life so that we could be saved; However, there are those who have simply never taken the holiday very seriously and have used it to focus on other things…

      Things such as awaiting the arrival of the Easter Bunny to see what treats and goodies he has for them; Dyeing eggs to a most specific color imaginable…Going to Easter egg hunts while dressing to impress…
Yes, those things are fine and good, but have they forgotten about the real, true meaning of Easter? With the world the way it is as of right now, then I do believe that we need the real, true message of Easter just as much as now as ever before. Easter is not about the Easter Bunny-It is about the most blessed story of all time: The story of how our Lord God sent His only Son into earth to allow Himself to take our place on the cross and to die there, as the ultimate payment for sins, both in the past and in the present.
And do you want to know something else? The whole world should always honor the fact that we have been blessed by God through Jesus Christ, not just at Easter, but each and every day, 365 days a year.

      At Easter this year, I think that it is a very good time for you to introduce your children to the blessed tale of salvation; Read the entire Easter story, either in the Gospels of Luke, Matthew, or John in the Holy Bible, and then let those blessed words of the Lord enrich the minds of your children, so that they will know and understand the fact that God sent Jesus to die for their sins; And then, if the Lord is willing, then sometime soon your children shall learn to keep on reading the Bible and then they shall know how to do things the right way from this most blessed book.
That should be the most blessed Easter gift that you would ever give to your children.
