Wow, everyone is do deep. I guess, I just try and live for Jesus, live the word. understand everyone has some personal convictions, but why does everything have to be sinful? I will give I understand the halloween for some people, but not for some. Christmas and Easter, are great for me. I do not care who used to do what B.C, or even A.D., I celebrate Jesus, and see Christmas and Easter, as a time of reflection of Christ. The truth is even unbelievers, have to reflect slightly, by the sheer nature of these seasons. Just my humble opinion. Holy week of Easter, just makes me feel almost surreal. My Sunday School kids usually paint a Mural on butcher paper divided in sections starting with Jesus and the palm leaves entering Jerusalem, going through the last Supper, the garden, the arrest, the death, burial, Resurrection and ascension in heaven of Jesus Christ. We use tree stickers, rock stickers, paint, foamies, magic markers, pencils cotton balls and the kids are truly, truly touched by this. You might ask why wait until it is Easter? Why not? the kids are focused on this aspect of Jesus sacrifice, and I want them to see that time of reflection. Yes Easter egg hunting is cool, I myself like the peeps, and chocolate bunnies, and I am sure Jesus, and his nature of loving kids would have went on an Easter Egg hunt with kids, and enjoyed it. If he were walking physically here now, Jesus, I guarantee you would participate in the Easter Egg hunt, and eat peeps and chocolate bunnies and eggs. I guess my view of the Lord is so much different than some peoples. I can see him chuckling at people who get in knots over these kind of things. wonder if he just thinks " people quit sweating the small things."
