What is Easter?
It is when…
a hurting person forgives, a betrayed friend gives a second chance to the betrayer, a spouse remains faithful and trusts his/her erring partner, a parent gets up for work even if he/she is not feeling well, a student saves his/her allowance to secretly help his/her parents a person stands fro what is right amidst criticisms, a person makes unpopular decisions despite opposition, a person remains honest, fair and just even if others are not, a priest loves everybody even if others are not true and trustworthy, a person remains hopeful even if the present is too dark and uncertain.
for me, this is what I call EASTER!
It is when a person sees beauty in any “ugly” circumstance. It is when a person feels what is not articulated. It is when a person loves the unlovable. It is when a person prays even if GOD is seemingly absent
This is Easter!
