Marshallow peeps, creme candy eggs, and chocolate bunnies line store aisles. A sweet treat most children love (all that sugar!). But these worldly items offer no explanation or representation of the message of Easter.
The message of Easter is simple: Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb of God, paid the price for humankind's sins so that we might have the freedom of new life through His death and resurrection on the cross.
Like newborns, we are made new through our faith in Him. "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." - 2 Corinthians 5:17
The candy peeps and chocolate bunnies will never represent Easter. However, the "real" baby chicks, bunnies, birds, and other baby animals born in this spring season, along with the blooming of flowering plants and trees are a reminder that God brings new life to the earth. And He has brought us new life through Jesus Christ, who offers us Salvation from the darkness of the sin of the world.
May your Easter be a day of celebration as you indulge in this beautiful, sweet message of spiritual food for your soul: Jesus Christ is risen! He has risen indeed!
My prayer for you: May you rejoice in the rebirth of your spirit and be renewed in faith each day, and may the light, joy, and love of the Lord guide you in all you do.

Oh Nancy, what a gift you have to be able to say and write the words that mean so much to me. I'm so blessed to have you as a friend.
