This will be another brief post since my eye is still beet red and just a bit swollen. I suppose it is time for me to make an appointment with my eye doctor, just to confirm that the redness is from the pollen. I will be so happy when this pollen ends. It is so thick this year, I can watch it blowing in the wind.
Yesterday, I wrote a brief post about Easter, describing what Easter means to me. The blessed memories of my grandmother, the celebrations we shared in church. However, I left out one important reason for the season of Easter, and that is the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
According to the website, http://christianity.about.com/od/holidaytips/qt/whatiseaster.htm
“Christians believe, according to Scripture, that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross. As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter. Through his death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for sin, thus purchasing for all who believe in him, eternal life in Christ Jesus.”
For those who read my post, I apologize for leaving this important information out. I suppose I was focusing on the memories of my grandmother and simply forgot to discuss the resurrection. Added to that, my silly eye problems.
I hope your Easter was a time to reflect and to remember why we celebrate Easter.
