It's Easter Sunday! Yes, we celebrate that He Lives!
On a renewed spiritual high, expressions of thanks we gratefully give
We reflect on the Easter Story, expecting a good day ahead
But being true to ourselves, some of the traditions we now very slightly dread...
Well, holidays without passed loved ones will never be same
But thank God for the memories---they help us to endure the pain
For we know that we were blessed with their love for many years
That's why on today we may surely shed a few tears
Although there will be some lows and many highs
The most important thing is that they are amongst the Heavenly skies
So, as we move through the blessings of this day
Let us remember the reason Easter comes our way
As we wipe away the teary midst from our eyes
We celebrate that God allowed our Jesus to rise!
What a selfless act to save us from sin
Because of Jesus, we can all live again
Through this life and through Eternity's gates
The chance to see our Heavenly Father and those loved ones awaits
So, if we believe in 1 Thessalonians 4 :16, we are wise
For it says that the dead in Christ, first, will rise
What a beautiful, welcoming reunion it will be
Let this be the vision on this Easter Sunday that we forsee
Peace and many Blessings, I extend to my sisters and brothers
Let us continue to pray, one for another
For whether our wounds are old or freshly anew
As believers, we are required to pray each other through
May we continue to love one another from the bottom of hearts
For real love is where the existence of Jesus starts
Happy Easter, this Spring 2023 season
Thank you, God, that Jesus The Christ is risen!
You could clearly see that I'm no true poet, as you perused the lines to read
But when God speaks to my heart, I've learned to listen intently and take heed
Peace & Blessings,
