What are we celebrating?

CLC bookshop gift

We are celebrating Jesus’ triumph over death! We are celebrating the destruction of the wall between us and God! We are celebrating the free Way to eternal life! Just making sure you know :P.

 This year I am having  a double Easter since in Romania we celebrate it this coming Sunday and in UK was celebrated yesterday. So I’m writing this post in between them. Easter has always been a wonderful time of the year for my family and me. My mother used to buy us new clothes for Good Friday when we went to church to get communion. We were having a blast painting eggs and preparing baskets with fresh grass to put them in. And the food…oh the good food! I am going to miss it so much this year! On Easter morning, my father used to put a red egg in a pot so that the water would turn red from the paint and them we washed our faces with that to make our cheeks red :). We had our nice family traditions. We knew about Jesus and his sacrifice, but we didn’t really think it over. And we’ve missed the essence…

This last month has been very chaotic for me. There have been ups and downs, some problems in my family, I also felt down because I couldn’t go home for Easter, I was missing Chris so badly and all that. But although all seemed gloomy I was not that affected. Not as much I would have been if I would be alone. I felt Jesus holding my hand all the way, telling me to take one step at a time, soothing my heart when it was broken, being there and bringing a smile on my face with his wonderful creations. This month I also felt how it is to be betrayed by a close one, but I found joy in that, knowing that Jesus went through this himself and through a lot more… I really learned that putting every aspect of my life in His hands will bring many many rewards.

As for this Easter, I bow down humbly before God and thank Him for giving his Son so that I could have all this and more. I thank Jesus for bearing my burden on the cross and taking my sin over himself. I don’t really have the words to express this…it is mind-blowing…

So what I wish all of you is to first take some time and reflect on this ( the Bible is a great help :)) and then proceed with the celebration of His resurrection.  😀 Happy Easter!
