He is Risen!

We love Easter.
We love spending time with family.
We love rolling Easter eggs down Old Main Hill.
We love Easter treats, namely Cadbury anything.
We love going on Easter egg/basket hunts!
We love dying Easter eggs.
We love Easter Ham.
We love big, fluffy bunny's hopping through parks.

But more importantly, we love the real reason we celebrate Easter. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I couldn't say it any better than this:

Happy Easter.
Don't forget to put the eggs aside and to remember the reason we are here today.
Our older brother and all the sacrifices he has made in our behalf.
He has given us everything.
May we turn our thoughts to him, not just today, but every day.
May we turn to him in our times of distress, sorrow and sin.
May we also rejoice in his glorious gospel by studying his life and minstry on the earth.
And by preparing to live with him again.
