Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; the one who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”
Today Christians Celebrate Easter
Jesus Rose from the grave on the third day
Virtual Vacation to Vegas #2
Like emerging from the dark into light, from death into life, during the season of Lent in which some Christians believe that they must give up something for six weeks prior to Easter. Easter morning, then is the day of celebrating that Christ rose from the dead. It is a time to feast and be happy. Jesus came out of the tomb to walk with believers for 50 days until he ascended back to heaven.
“The purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer for Easter through prayer, mortifying the flesh, repentance of sins, almsgiving, simple living and self-denial.”Wikipedia
In a more secular celebration, we hide Easter eggs in plain sight for the little ones rather than than in a tunnel. Those who find eggs in the tunnel, don’t stay in the tunnel, but bring them into the light to enjoy them.
If you haven’t heard of Becky’s Square Challenges, she runs them every three months. To join, follow the links. BrightSquare Day 4
“As usual for a Squares Challenge month I will be sharing squares daily, and I would love it if you did the same. However if daily sounds too daunting, don’t worry. It is fine to join us weekly or even just pop in occasionally with your squares. The frequency of your squares depends on you and also your blog. All I ask is that your image has 4 equal sides, and that it reflects the theme of bright.”Becky B.
