A great thing about living close to grand kids is they draw you pictures for the ‘fridge. Then during COVID-19 shutdowns, not wanting to get your germs, they stick ’em between your front doors, ring the door bell and hide. Surprise! You’ve got a new smile. Love it!
So, how’s it going with your “stay at home” recommendation? Are you finding ways to spend your time?
The thing I’m noticing most is these days is that I’m thankful for the little things. Like new pictures for our “art gallery” in the kitchen. As you can see, with Easter this Sunday, eggs were the theme this week. Eggs remind me of Easter and Jesus rising from the dead! Thanks to my grand kids for their timely reminder. Can you think of anything to be more excited about? Let me ask the question a different way.
So who else do you know who claimed to be God and then proved his claim by rising from the dead?
I didn’t think so.
No, God’s got the goods when it comes to greatness, unmatched love and eggstrordinary power. These is no one like our God. This Sunday, many of us will be worshipping with church friends on Facebook (again) but social distancing notwithstanding, I suspect we’ll still have plenty to get excited about.
The joyous celebration of Easter cannot be tainted by a little inconvenience, Amen?
I know this season we’re in is a hassle. I get that. If I’m being honest I’m battling boredom a little myself but then I think of all the ways that the Lord has blessed me and instantly my cup is full, and running over.
I love the words of Paul on being contented no matter what he was going through:
…for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:11-13.
As we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus our King this weekend, let’s do it with eggstrordinary contentment.
I see that smile on your face. Happy Easter.
Something to think about.
