Easter Living

Easter. Spring, pastels, flowers, eggs, bunnies… What does this day make you think of?

On Easter, people proclaimed, “Jesus lives!” Granted, he rose from the dead. It wasn’t merely living, it was resurrection. I was raised to ask, “What would Jesus do?” He lived. I may not follow that religion anymore, but I can follow a strong example.

At funerals, we say, “She was _____.” A mother, a daughter, a teacher, a friend, etc. At my funeral, I hope people say, “She lived.” Fully, fearlessly, boldly. She lived, she loved, she was. I have plenty I’d like to do, also, but it all stems from being. Not attempting to act my way into any kind of legacy; rather, to simply be present, be in this body I’ve been given, on this planet I was born on. Be. Live. The rest follows.

Easter is a holiday of resurrection, coming back to life. Spring is here, even if there is snow on the ground, and it’s a time of rebirth. Trees die in the winter; they stop growing – that’s why trees in North America have rings on the inside that tell how old they are. In the rainforest these rings don’t exist; trees never stop growing. Well, whether you went dormant in the winter or not, I invite you to continue growing with me. Join in the newness, the freshness, the life. We live in a vibrant world – let’s actually live in it.

I’ve considered starting a blog for a while now, and the timing finally feels right. I have life to document, to record, to share. This will chronicle my adventures, my opinions, my questions, my inspirations. Look for posts on Wednesdays and Sundays.
