Easter is comming up, it is one of my favorite holidays. That is one think that my parents did well, they always did something to try and make me and my siblings feel special. To this day I still get an easter basket, and Santa still brings me gifts. I know alot of people hate the commericalizm of the holiday's and the focus of Chirst is sometimes lost, but i think it is important to celebrate these holiday's with family, and with whatever traditions you wish. Shouldn't we be praising God and thankful for the Cross everyday. Shouldn't the importance of Jesus's birth be lived out in our every day life. So as easter approaches I will look at my life reflect, on what Jesus has done for me, and be thankful. I will praised God for sending his son and I will try to live out the love that Jesus has given to me.
I will also spend the weekend with my family, going to Church together,everyone getting dressed up, taking our traditional easter picture. We will sit down and have a home cooked meal and then have an easter egg hunt, (my dad puts money in the plastic eggs, so it can get a bit dangerous if you are not careful) . I am so thankful that I have such good memories of family time together, and am so thankful that my parents have done such a good example for me to follow in how to really show Christ's love no matter what.
I hope that when john and i have a family we will be able to do the little things to make our kids feel special and loved.
well that's all
