How are you celebrating Easter?

April 5th, 2012

KRISTI LEIGH — How are you celebrating Easter?  I don’t just mean who are you eating ham with and where?…  I’m talking about really celebrating!  I’ve noticed that holidays are so much more meaningful when I find ways to be intentional about celebrating them.  This week my husband, Sam, and I are planning on attending a Passover seder, watching the movie “The Passion Of The Christ”, doing egg hunts with our niece and nephews, giving flowers to the ladies in the family and celebrating with our church on Sunday.  Even as I think about our plans for the week, my heart is touched with the real “reason for the season”.  (Yeah, it’s not just for Christmas anymore!)  So…what are your plans?  If you’re looking for events happening in our listening area that will help Easter come alive to you, check out our Events Page at www.WJTL.com (click here).  It’s my encouragement to you to do more than just eating ham and going to church on Sunday.  Sometimes seasons in our lives don’t allow for much extra activity.  Maybe you’re going through something tough like that.  But take the opportunity if you can!  Even if it’s reading the story in the Bible or just pausing for a moment and thinking about what your life is like because of Resurrection Day!  Celebrate!

Happy Easter Week!

    This week for Easter, my boyfriend, Mark, and I will travel to western PA to visit with my family, take flowers for my mom, and return home to celebrate at our church on Sunday. We’ll continue the holiday season next week by visiting his family and taking flowers to his mom. We may attend a Good Friday service in western PA, as well.

    Sounds like my week – cooking and participating in Seder celebration tomorrow night, leading worship Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sunday at my church. Catching up with family for meals, dog sitting their pets, Easter breads to be made… What an awesome season. Because of His sacrifice we can live!!!

    All right, Denise! Way to go! Even dog sitting and bread baking count at celebrating when your heart is in it! 🙂

    We will be spending time with family both Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. My daughter has received plenty of Easter candy from school and relatives, so I decided to plant a flower with her this year. I plan to make this a tradition with her and my other daughter as she gets older. We also thank God for Jesus’s death and resurrection as we pray together each night.
