As I write this it’s the Wednesday before Easter and I have finished work until Tuesday which is nice. But am I ready for Easter? It is so easy to lose the important in the midst of the ordinary.
A couple of things that I have kept going constantly over the months are the Bible box and the gift box. I often find it interesting how reluctant people are to take something that is free. But this week things have moved-a couple of bibles one day and the gift box 🎁 has completely emptied which has never happened before. It struck me how reluctant we often are to accept something that is free. We suspect either there is a hidden cost or we don’t think that we deserve it. Easter is a reminder that we get something very special free but there was a great cost behind it.
There will be more cooking and planning of other activities this weekend. Meanwhile, I mentioned in the last blog that Easter is often a dangerous time for persecuted Christians. It is two years since the Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 Church bombings while last weekend a suicide bomber attacked a church in Indonesia 🇮🇩. Easter is a difficult time for many….do remember them.
Having said all that I hope you have a very Happy Easter. Thanks for your support and interest.
