Not a big fan of easter…

Call me a party pooper, but I am not a big fan of easter. What does an easter bunny have in common with eggs? Last time I checked, bunnies don’t lay eggs.

I know, I know. Rigid you might be thinking, but give me a minute or two of your time.

I have always been a little unsettled about celebrating easter by way of chocolate, eggs, and bunnies. But, I shirked if off and got in line with everyone else. But, that unsettled feeling has never left. 

So, this year instead of ignoring it and getting in line, I jumped ship and started doing some research. And I am praying. A lot. 

I am still unsettled, but I am okay hanging out here because I know God will eventually lead me into truth regarding this traditional holiday.

Even though I am not a big fan of easter, one thing’s for sure, I am in love with Jesus who died for my sins and was raised from the dead so that I can live. That is worth celebrating!

In the mean time, I will continue seeking and searching for truth that will set me free from this unsettledness. I know He will set my feet upon a solid rock. 

He is risen!! Hallelujah!

    The whole bunny thing is unsettling to me too just like Santa and overspending takes over Christmas! I believe pagans incorporate these traditions into and around Christian celebrations in an attempt to overshadow the true reasons for celebrating. I personally have always made an effort to teach the gospel in the middle of the commercialism. When my daughter was little we made tomb cookies. You mix them the night before and put them in a hot oven cut the oven off and don’t. Open the door until the next morning.when you take them out of the oven they are open and hollow “empty ” just like Jesus’ tomb was empty! Happy Easter! Celebrate new life!

    • I know, Tracy. We def want to teach the truth of the Gospel. Nothing wrong with having fun, but when the bunny rabbit is more important than Jesus Christ, it is unsettling. Thank you for the encouragement!!

    I totally concur Lizzie. I went to Sunrise Service feeling such joy that my savior had risen! All around me were people who felt the same. Our Pastor suggested greeting everyone with Happy Resurrection Day(he doesn’t like that Easter word either). So I went home ready to welcome my family into my home, but alas they did not want to be greeted with Happy Resurrection Day…..I was left with an aching feeling for our savior, and nobody but my hubby could understand why. I wished I had gone to some of my congregation’s houses to celebrate instead of being with my family 😦

    • Thank you, Patti. I still have a sick feeling in my gut when I think about it. An aching feeling as you describe. He is risen and that is worth celebrating for a lifetime, my friend!! Thank you for reading.
