Happy Easter, Ya’ll! 🙂 Today was a rare day and a glorious one.
I will start on the rare day first:
Today was a rare day because work was actually closed all day! Last time we closed was on Christmas Day, so I decided we were off on Easter Sunday. It was really nice to not have to get up and load the computer and start processing orders. I was able to turn off my regular alarm, lazily wake up, and then have cuddle time with my dog, Ragonk. I went to Bible Study class, then spent the afternoon with family. It was wonderful! I truly believe the mind and body need rest and with the industry that my business is in, it prevents that ability due to being a seven-day a week industry. I feel the pressure of working seven days. I am trying to create boundaries to allow my mind and body to get the needed rest and today was a first step on that journey. 🙂

Now, onto the glorious one:
Being a Christian, today I celebrated the Risen Christ after His crucifixion and three-days in the tomb. Today reminds believers that Christ is alive and well and He has overcome death. I have many friends who are Christians and many who are not, and one of the biggest differences I see in these two types of friends is the fear of death. When you are not a believer in Christ, you view death as an ending with nothingness after. When you are a believer in Christ, death is just the beginning of a life everlasting with Christ. As a believer, I do not fear death, I welcome it when it is my time to go because I know I will go to a better place than this Earth. That knowledge is so refreshing and having that knowledge, I rejoice in the life people lived after they pass and rejoice in their life everlasting if they are a believer. It is amazing to be free of the fear of death and I wish everyone could feel that. 😀
