Dear Diary, Easter 2015 is here and preparing for a buffet of Smoked Honey Roasted Spiral Cut Brown Sugar Pineapple Glazed Ham. I must prepare for my holiday food coma, I must stretch my belly this morning to make room for the Ham and all the traditional Easter side dishes. The early morning stink of hard boiled Easter Eggs permeate from the refrigerator puts me in full Holiday happiness.  I dream about the Cream & Cheddar Cheesy Potatoes accompanied with Durkee Dried Onions and then it hits me, this is the holiday that saves us.

Oh Heavenly Father, is this why you were raised from the grave, so we could run to the store and buy out the stores of Black Olives and Cheese Whiz. We all need to stop and reflect on the Resurrection and how you have saved all of us from our sins. I think we need to make this day a new beginning for all that we live for, everlasting life with our savior.

So let’s not forget why we celebrate Easter, a reason to find Easter eggs, eat pounds of ham and indulge in chocolate treats. While you are looking for the eggs well hidden in the backyard, remember someone rose from the grave today. So remember in your hunt for eggs, you might just find Jesus and praise this day, your savior is alive!

Matthew 28:18-20 – 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
