20 Things that Mean Easter to Me

(In no order)

  1. Jesus is Alive

  2. Hallelujahs

  3. Hearing this song lyric at my church growing up:

Living, He loved me

Dying, He saved me

Buried, He carried my sins far away

Rising, He justified freely forever

One day He's coming

Oh glorious day, oh glorious day

4. Women. The Tomb. Testimony.

5. He got up with all power in his hands.

6. Emmaus. Nothing but linens remained..

7. Tulips. Chicks.

8. Spring.. Second Chances.

9. Pastels. Joy!

10. Church hats.

11. Easter pictures with family and friends.

12. This year it means Stifel Theatre and 3,200 guests. #EasterSTL

13. Easter outfits and shoes. My suit is Malibu Blue : )

14. Dinner and yeast rolls. Dessert.

15. Egg Hunts and fun family games.

16. Holy Week… slow motion to the main event. (Maundy Thursday and Good Friday)

17. Easter devotional books - I recommend mine to you GET UP: Unearthing Your Passion and Taking Brave Action in 50 Days.

18. Easter is a season, not just a day! A 50-day season until Pentecost!

19. HOPE for the world.

20. Resurrection of Jesus and Resurrection for me!

Which ones do you relate to the most?

Prayer: I hope you celebrate new life and new possibilities this Easter season. If you’re a minister, I pray you have a joy-filled Sunday and deep-sleep Monday. May we all breathe in this new season, allowing ourselves to shine as brilliantly as the flowers blooming. May we hold on to the hope and assurance of resurrection. Filled with peace, let’s live with the power that’s ours through the Holy Spirit. So be it. It is so. Amen.
