A Very Good Day

Pompeii_steepleEaster is a Christian day — one of the most holy days. Those of Christian faith do not need me or a blog to understand this day. But today I write for everyone else; because, especially in the light of recent events, today is a day worth noting.

Whether you believe the story of this day to be fact, fable, or fantasy, it is a day worth celebrating because Easter is about that rare and wonderful thing we see too little of in life (and religion):  Pure Joy.

Easter is the one official day of the year designated to remind us that miracles can happen. It is about being brave in the face of the impossible. It is a tale about friendship, loyalty, and love. It is about being true to what matters to you.

Easter is the day to celebrate the triumph of good over evil. It is sunrise after the darkest night. It is the beautiful surprise of happiness after deepest sorrow. This is a day that reminds us all:  No matter what — no matter how you struggle, no matter what you face, no matter how terrified you may be — you can always, always, always find hope in tomorrow.

And that’s a pretty good day. That’s a life preserver.

He is risen. It is spring. There is goodness in the world. Happy Easter.

    Love it. Although perhaps you could call it a Christian day instead of a Catholic day!! Just a pet peeve, I grew up Catholic but sometimes both Catholics and Christians believe they are somehow seperate religions
