He Is Risen

Growing up in Indiana, it rained or was overcast most of the time (which is why our parents moved to Texas). Christmas and Easter were supposed to be joyful times, but it usually rained or was gloomy. My young mind could not understand that weather had nothing to do with religion (unlike ancient times). Just as it could not reconcile people dying or being buried when the sun was shining. But the weather is science and happens regardless of we puny, insignificant human beings. Only religion and our egos make us feel superior, but we are never in charge of this planet or beyond. We can merely observe, and I observe that our species, the “intelligent” ones, are still not kind to everyone, do not help those in need without a second thought,  or do not recognize that God created us ALL, and that Jesus’ teachings have been for naught – after all this time! What hypocrisy it is to “accept” Jesus into one’s life, to be “born again,” when subsequent actions and words – hateful, intolerant, prejudiced, violent, judgemental, and uncaring – are far from Christian. We need to embrace the meaning of His life every day of every year.

Have a blessed and happy Easter!

  1. This is such a sadly beautiful, direct, and insightful summation, going to the heart of the problem with most religions, hypocrisy. Christianity should be so peacefully simple to follow, as was the life of Christ. I loved your child not being able to reconcile death/burial while the sun was shining. Christ so loved the open innocence of children.
