The Big Day April 11, 2009

Posted by clintcarter in Family, God.

We drove down to Ft. Worth on Saturday to spend Easter with my family.  We’ve missed spending the last 7 Easters with them because we lived in Missouri.  Looking forward to being with my siblings and their families.  The egg hunt should be pretty wild with 10 kids under the age of 9 – plus their calling for thunderstorms in the area tomorrow afternoon so we’ll need to put rubber soles on the children and make sure their baskets don’t contain any metal 🙂

I wish Easter had the type of intro that Christmas gets.  You know, we could start listening to Easter songs right after Valentine’s Day.  The stores could be stocked with Easter stuff (oh, wait never mind).  Seriously, I do think there is some value in the crescendo toward an important date.  For a Christ follower, Easter is incredibly significant.  It was the proof that Jesus’ message was true and truly good news.  I think I connect more so with what Christmas means because I’m prepped for a month before hand.  I think Easter could become the same type of celebration – not by secularizing it – but by believers marinating in the truth of what they are celebrating for more than just a Sunday morning.  So in that vein – let me leave you something to marinate in.

I agree. I’m actually amazed that more Protestants haven’t latched on to the idea of Lent, and the time that could be spent preparing our hearts for the truth of what our Savior came to do.
