so, it's easter evening. my hangover has subsided, and i'm now ready for a round of visiting relatives and some more merrymaking. yeah, i know, i didn't really have an excuse for all the frivolities of last night, considering i didn't fast, sacrifice, or do any sort of penance this lent. heck, i bunked confession, even.
sounds like this is everything easter isn't supposed to be, right? there was a time when it felt like that to me too.
but not any more.
what is easter? it's a celebration.
it's a celebration of hope. of salvation. of having a singular purpose to our lives, however wayward our means may be. it's the spirit of christianity. to me, the rules, the norms, are all secondary.
eat and drink your fill. be merry. but do not forget that christ is risen, and we will rise too. all we need to do is the work of god.
um...and pass the easter eggs, please? :P
