  1. I agree. I think the Resurrection is not merely one event in one moment but that it is a process for each of us to be renewed and recleansed as successive baptisms. Easter blessings.

  2. Happy Easter to you and your family 🙂

    • Happy Easter to you and yours–it is the true beginning of spring- weather be darned

  3. Happy Easter to you too, Love, nia

  4. Yes, a second chance! Easter is more meaningful to me as I grow older, and more removed from much of the child-related focus on this holiday. I love dyeing eggs and the traditions that I celebrated with my children. But now, more than ever, I feel my focus is on the event and the meaning to life, rather than what I’m serving for Easter lunch, or getting Easter baskets done for my kids. Much more contemplative, more real! ~ Sheila

    • We do start to appreciate things for their intrinsic value than the outer layers as we mature (!?)–and think about what the meaning really is–Happy Easter

  5. It is so true. Happy Easter to you and your family.

  6. I agree with this. As long as we keep moving forward with an honest desire for improvement, our second chances keep on coming. There is a plan for our salvation, just as sure as there is a plan for our happiness. This much I know. 🙂
    Happy Easter, my friend!

    • I love the idea of second chances (and third, fourth and fifth….) until we get it right for us–
      Happy Easter Lisa!

  7. I love the colors of Easter. Soft pink, baby blue, pale yellow, mint green. Makes me want to find my bonnet and dance barefoot in a dewy meadow.

  8. Happy Easter Lou.

  9. I say let’s celebrate it every day!
    Happy Hoppy Easter to you & your family xoxo

  10. Lovely picture there! Easter is really very important! To me, it’s much more than just a second chance, it’s the correction. Christ arose that we might be completely free from the clutches of the old nature. Yes, it’s not just about the season; it lingers through every single day of our lives. We are transformed by that singular act! Happy Easter to you too!

    • a wonderful synopsis of what the day is all about–thanks so much–and Happy Easter to you

      • You are always welcome! I hope you are having a wonderful time…

  11. Happy Easter to you and your family. 🙂

  12. Happy Easter! For me this year, it was a chance to get away with my husband on a mini vacation. We’ve just returned and I think we are ready to face the coming spring now. Hope you found a few chocolate eggs..

    • Yes, I have been munching some peanut m & m’s in the easter colours — nice that you got to get away — it is a little springlike around here to day

  13. I am not Christian so I cannot say I see Easter that way but it is a very interesting idea 🙂

    Happy Easter!

  14. This year Easter symbolizes a lot as we have just learned that a family member has a terminal illness. Easter reminds us that there is always hope.

    • hope is what we have to cling to–we just found out that a family friend passed away–and it certainly puts a different complexion on things

      • @ Live and Learn–Sorry to hear about you sad news. Prayer is a powerful tool. I will keep your family in my prayers.

  15. A great thought… now just need to take advantage of that second chance!

  16. Hope your Easter has been beautiful LouAnn!!

    • I hope the same for you–you still have today off don’t you? I worked in a law office once and loved those holidays off!

      • Yes I do, and other than a last bit of laundry and running the vacuum over quickly, I am going to be relaxing all day!! I do have a book editing job to work on, but that’s still way less stressful than going into work :). And I am going to read, read, read!! Now that’s bliss!!

      • a book editing job — sounds interesting — your plan to read read read sounds like bliss to me young lady!

  17. A wonderful thought for Easter as I haven’t thought of it that way.

  18. That’s what Easter is all about, isn’t it. A new beginning–a new life.
