His Sacrifice For Me

Easter is something I could let pass me by this year; if it were not for Jesus Christ. The decorations, candy, the ideas that go along with kids is pretty much at ground zero in my home.

I think of Al even more as I walk through the store. It reminds me of last year when Al was still at the nursing home. I had visited him and brought with me Easter cookies, a case of diet coke, and lots of candy.

At the time I knewย  I was foolish buying him all that unhealthy stuff, but this year I smile big as I am so thankful I did what I did. The good thing is Al is there now. It is so amazing to know that he doesn’t have to go to the movies to watch Easter themes. He is right there, walking beside Jesus. Oh how lucky he is.

For the umpteenth time I am repeating myself. I love you Buddy and I miss you so much. You enjoy your meal together with the highest of family and I will pretend that Easter for kids is magnificent.

My son and his family will be here tomorrow. We are having what I call a laid-back lunch. Sloppy Jos, chips and salads. I just don’t have the oomph to make that big five-course meal this year. My two grandchildren will hunt for all the hidden, colorful eggs and I shall smile, knowing I am making wonderful memories with them.

You all have a blessed Easter. Make great memories and do something you may not normally think of this year. Remember when I talked earlier about the diet coke and Easter candy for a grown man? Well, I am glad I did that out of the normal thing.

Happy Easter my friends and God bless each of you on this magnificent day.

  1. I’m so glad you’ll have family around you. So will we. We don’t put a huge emphasis on the typical kid things, either. We colored eggs with them last night, and their parents hid them early this morning so they could find them all ๐Ÿ™‚ The main emphasis is Jesus, and that’s as it should be. Bless you, Terry. I’m SO glad we met !


  2. I think i’ve my brother also, what is it LIKE up there in heaven! man, what sorry festivities we have in comparison, but your are right – right now is a blessing, a time of joy and memories in the making. have a blessed Easter Terry ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. No need for a full blown “Easter style” meal. The time with the fam is the main part.
    And- hey – have a coke for Al. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Happy Easter to you & your loved ones & of course – that includes your angel in Heaven.
