Easter   Leave a comment

It has been many years since I was able to wear something new for Easter Sunday service.  

Wearing something new for Easter goes back to my childhood.  I never make a big deal out of it, but for a long time I was able to buy a dress or blouse or something new to wear just for Easter Sunday.  I would buy it and not wear it until Easter.  Do you have any habits that date from your childhood?

Well, life intervened the past 10 years and for various reason that are long and involved that I won’t bore you with — I was not able to wear anything new on Easter.  I always dressed carefully, I always tried to be extra “spiffy”.  But nothing new.

Until this year.  By God’s grace and the help of a super shopper I was able to buy new clothes for the first time in 8 years and on Easter Sunday I went to church wearing everything new — including a new alligator-type hair clip a friend had given to me for my birthday.  

YEAH!  No one in the building had any idea I was new from head to toe except me and God, but it didn’t matter.  I was there on Easter to celebrate and rejoice in the risen Christ and I was brand new shiny for it.  

I hope your Easter was peaceful and pleasant and that you experienced the wonder of knowing a risen savior.
