Easter - Jesus is still the reason for the season

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter weekend.  Some remember Easter as a sad time.  Even though Jesus did die on Good Friday, we forget the best part....... that he arose from the grave on that third day! 

Matthew 28:6-
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

What a special day to celebrate our Lord Jesus Christ.  
I get a bit aggravated at how the media and society commercialize Easter with fluffy bunnies, colored eggs and chocolate.  Don't get me wrong, I love chocolate and these other things too, but making that a focal point of Easter drives me nuts!  

When my kids were small enough to participate in the egg hunts, I let them.  But they know that Jesus, again, is the reason for the season.  We participate in Christmas w/ gifts, trees, etc.  but we still enjoy the season for how it is meant to be celebrated.... the birth and life of Jesus Christ.
