Things I’ve learned about Easters

Yes, I typed “Easters” on purpose. And, if you don’t know the reference, then I command you to watch Nacho Libre. That’s an order-or at least a very strong suggestion.


But, this isn’t about Nacho Libre. This is about Easters and the things that I have learned about it over the last 3 decades. Fasten your seatbelt. This is about to get cuh-raaaaazy.

1. They aren’t “deviled eggs” in Christian households.

2. They are called “angeled eggs”.

3. The Easter Bunny didn’t come to our house, unless Grandpa was in town. And, I’m not sure I’d really want a visit from this bunny anyways.

4. Peeps are gross.

 


5. Cadbury eggs are not. They can last a young girl an entire week of nibbling-if the chocolate supply is running low in aforementioned young girl’s home.

 


6. Ham is always tastier if made by Grandma.

 


7. But, most importantly what I have learned about Easters is:

I have been forgiven of all of my sins because Jesus took them on and sacrificed himself for me over 2,000 years ago. I can’t imagine doing that for anyone-especially for someone as jacked up as me. But, He did.

All that I had ever done and will do was nailed to that cross. But Jesus is no longer nailed to the cross-he is alive. He died, went to hell and took the keys of death away from Satan. Now, Jesus is my advocate, seated at the right hand of God, whispering to God that he loves me and that he’s forgiven me. I don’t deserve to be a part of God’s holiness, but because of Jesus, I share in that inheritance.

He did it for me and he did it for you. Happy Easters!

    Good stuff right there, my friend. Good stuff. And yes, I got the “EasterS” thing as soon as I read the title on your link on Facebook! :)
    All of the above is definitely true. Every one of them. Personally, I went to church yesterday for what is probably the first time in, I don’t know, five, ten years. I have had this itch to go for a while. I felt it. I loved it. I can’t wait to go back!!!
    Happy spring. :):)

      We all know which Grandma I’m referring to and of course, that means you? You are a Grandma, technically-maybe not my Grandma, but you are one. Wow. I am not digging myself out of this one, am I?
