Images of Easter

What images spring to mind when you think of Easter? This is what a lot of people think of:




In some ways it's sad that this is the first thing that pops into your head when thinking of Easter because although the Easter Bunny, candy and fresh flowers are all good things, they aren't  what Easter's really about.

This is what Easter is really about:

These pictures are hard to look at and cause me sadness as I think about all of the pain that Jesus had to endure. But He endured all that He did because He loves us. I'm so grateful I know this and that I don't have to question it, especially in this world where bad things happen and people are always asking, "Why?"

Here's the best part… three days after Jesus was crucified He was resurrected, and one day I will be resurrected, too! (We all will.) No more paralysis, no more being trapped in a broken body. 


This knowledge that my suffering won't last forever is what keeps me going even when the future looks bleak. This is what allows me to be so happy and positive.
