Inspiration: Happy Easter Memories

Inspiration: Happy Easter and Passover Memories

Christ is Risen: The world below lies desolate
Christ is Risen: The spirits of evil are fallen
Christ is Risen: The angels of God are rejoicing
Christ is Risen: The tombs of the dead are empty
Christ is Risen indeed from the dead,
the first of the sleepers,
Glory and power are his forever and ever
St. Hippolytus (AD 190-236)

One of the special gifts we receive at Easter is a spirit of renewal; it is a time of rebirth and an opportunity to start afresh again. I have always loved the idea of being resurrected to accomplish all the things we put aside. This year, in the spirit of Easter and Passover, let’s bless each other in peace and keep hope alive. We can all do our part. At Easter service today, our pastor encouraged everyone to take a quick selfie shot and share it with others on Facebook. It was a truly modern way to connect with many others by using the hashtag #HappyEaster!

Another special gift we receive at Easter is the joyful celebration of spending time and sharing an Easter meal with loved ones. This Easter, my aunt and two cousins joined us for a lovely meal. The last time I saw my aunt and one of my cousins was in 2001 when I took my kids home to visit our extended family in Nigeria. I met my other cousin, in person, for the first time on Easter Sunday. We ate, laughed, and shared many memories from the past and, in the same spirit of celebration, we renewed our familial connections. This special Easter memory will remain with me for years to come. How did you spend your Easter? What memories come to mind? Happy Easter to you and yours!

“The great gift of Easter is hope –
Christian hope which makes us have
that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph,
and in his goodness and love,
which nothing can shake.”
Basil C Hume (1923-1999)

Has this special holy weekend of Easter and Passover inspired hope in you? What precious memories were triggered for you? Did you do anything differently today? Soon we will see the full beauty of spring as more blooms open up and brighten of our landscape. This seasonal shift is a powerful reminder of the promise of the resurrection. It has been a long, long, cold winter and I’m excited to embrace the spring. May the refreshing spirit of Easter touch all our lives and embolden us anew. Again, Happy Easter and Happy Passover!

Positive Motivation Tip: The spirit of Easter  awaken hope in our hearts. Seize the moment to renew other areas of your life.

    Since I’m not a christian, I don’t view Easter as an important holiday as other people do. However, I do love the pagan aspects of this holiday involving fertility. I do believe fertility is really what makes the world go round, lol.
