Not everyone these days holds a belief (or certainly not a positive one) in God or Jesus Christ, who is the nominal reason many millions today and over this weekend celebrate with a day off work or a day spent in remembrance of a life sacrificed in the service of humanity.
There could be few, if any people though, who would not think it of value in their own lives to spend even a little time contemplating the concept of serving one’s fellow man and doing so in a state of humility, believing that others needs are at least equal to our own – that we are not so superior to our fellow human beings. Even in the extreme case of laying down our own life for another.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
Easter Time for me is also a reminder that our life is about rebirth; the ending of one stage is followed by the beginning of another, at ALL levels of our being. There is a Circle of Life, as there is a development and growth into greater and ever greater stages.
However you celebrate this Holy-Day i hope it is a day of appreciation, gratitude and Love within you all.
