“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.” (John 11:25)
Today is Easter Sunday, the holiest day in Christianity. The day Jesus Christ rose from the dead and promised eternal life for all who believe in Him. Even for people who don’t deserve it, like yours truly.
This last year has been the most trying of my life. My mother passed away, I lost two friends to cancer, my cousin’s son took his own life, and most recently, the Covid decimated Mrs. Earp and me. I keep asking myself why this is happening to me, but the more I think about it, things like this happen to everyone. It is not focused upon me or my family. Everyone has it difficult, because if life wasn’t difficult it would not be worth living.
There are days I curse people for what they do, or I curse myself for being a terrible Christian. But I believe. Despite all the tragedies, all the injustices, I still believe there is a better reward in Heaven. Until my ticket is punched, I’ll still at least try to be a better person.
Whether you’re a Christian or not, enjoy this wonderful day.
