SUPER Saturday/ Preparing for Easter
Because we have a lot to do today we need to take some time to it well.
As I made my Easter preparations this year, I had to remind myself to keep focused on the importance of Easter. Working to prepare for Easter can offer us many precious moments. As we color our Easter Eggs, we can think about how eggs symbolize New Life.
Any festive celebration (and Easter is our greatest cause of rejoicing) takes advance preparation. While preparing some food to share with my family I thought about how it seems that most celebrations include a good meal and my family loves to eat and are all very good cooks too so we're always assured it will be a wonderful feast.
We also must make the most of our appearance on Easter Sunday. I remember times long ago when new clothing was bought for each of my children to wear Easter Day. Easter bonnets it seems is a thing of the past for many but I loved wearing them and putting one on my daughters head too. They were definitely a sign of Easter. Even though I won't have an Easter bonnet this year I'll be wearing something festive and gay to celebrate this most Joyous holiday... wearing new clothes can symbolize the gift of our New Life
More than food or new clothing though, we need to prepare our hearts and minds. Sometimes that is the hardest part. We don't want to be worrying about what others might say or do, we don't want to be criticizing them for what they don't do...we really want to make the most of this celebration. Focus on the positive side of the occasion and just celebrate!
Taking time to do everything well will makes for a grand celebration.
Have a SUPER Saturday everyone!
