At the conclusion of Mel Gibson's film,
Passion of the Christ
before the credits, we see the empty tomb. While the film ends at
this point, the story does not. Easter is my favorite day of the
year because we celebrate the events that follow. For me, while that celebration
continues year-round, Easter is an extra special time. I always look forward
to belting out A Mighty Fortress is our God
and other hymns with
the organ at full volume accompanied by the choir and orchestra and with
such amplitude that the foundations shake. To me, to call this a glorious
day would be an understatement.
From our family to yours, Grace and Peace to you!
I also enjoy the traditions of the day, including excited children, gift
baskets, good food, and of course, fellowship with family and friends.
