For a while now--most of my life, really--the true meaning of Easter has escaped me. I've always known, of course, that there was more to Easter than jelly beans and stuffed bunnies, but I've never really stopped to really acknowledge the "reason for the season," if you will. (I know, I know--that's Christmas, but just go with me on this one.) I mean, to be honest, I'm not even EXACTLY sure of the history of Good Friday. I THINK it's the day Jesus was killed and buried in the rock cave thingie, and then on Easter He rose. Or maybe that's Palm Sunday that He died...but then what's the story on Good Friday? Discuss.
Anyway, I know everyone has different beliefs and I'm certainly not one to force my religious convictions on anyone else. However, I do want to wish everyone a truly blessed Easter.
(And Anna, our thoughts and prayers are with you this weekend.) ;)
