Happy Easter!

Even though we’re all homebound for this holiday, I hope that a little ‘spirit of the season’ remains with everyone.

Little things like bunnies and chicks, daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths, can help to brighten things up –

Some members of our family celebrate with the “Easter Rat” – this year having special ‘pandemic’ themes –

This one’s from my brother Bobby and Wayne’s sister Judy:

And this one is from our niece Emily and her husband Michael:

Whatever way you celebrate, or if you celebrate at all, I hope that everyone has a special day!  And don’t forget how the tradition of the Easter Bunny started –

The Watering Hole: Sunday, April 24, 2011: HAPPY EASTER and BLESSED OESTARA

Hand-Painted Easter Eggs

As I woke up this morning, I got to wondering, why did this custom of coloring eggs and hiding them come about?  I could think of only one answer: because it’s fun.

So, today, while many go to church for one of their two visists a year; many celebrate their belief that the Son of God came back to life in His physical body, giving proof of life after death; many others treat this as just another Sunday; and others treat this as a day to celebrate Spring, with all its attendant colors and hope of a bountiful harvest.

If there is one singular meaning for today, I believe it is this: enjoy life.

Peace and Blessings,
