Happy Belated Easter to Christians and Every-“Bunny”

For Christians, Easter is the most important celebration in the Christian faith.

It commemorates the resurrection of the Savior, Lord Jesus Christ, from the grave, the centre in which the Christian faith rests its beliefs—that Jesus was crucified on the cross, having died on behalf of humankind’s sins, instead of humankind itself (thus saving humankind from the wrath of God, sparing them instead to a chance at a fulfilling relationship with God and eternal life)—to rise back to life three days later, proof of not only His deity, but of His power over evil and death.

Easter, for Christians, is more than an Easter-Egg-Hunt, but a deep reflection on the magnitude of Jesus’ sacrifice on behalf of humankind out of endearing love and compassion.

It is a day to not only honour God specifically for the damnation mankind has been spared from, but the life mankind has been lovingly given—a gratefulness that springs up from the heart of every Christian in his or her trust, faith, and love in God.

That said, it is my belief there is no harm in giving children an opportunity for fun and treats in the act of an exciting Egg Hunt for colourful surprises including delectable chocolate.

Here are some great Easter books especially for children to celebrate with:

This year, my children and my husband and I enjoyed a quiet, but eventful Easter weekend, enjoying the blessing God has given us in the birth of wonderful and long-awaited spring weather and an opportunity to purchase bicycles for our family’s recreational use to travel to our local grocery store, doctor’s office, or city park.

From my little bunnies, to yours—we hope you had a blessed and happy Easter not only filled with chocolate eggs or chocolate bunnies, but also quality time to spend with loved ones, and a relaxing opportunity to enjoy a good book!
