The children of India and Pakistan will not awaken to baskets full of candy and toys, indulging in chocolate marshmallow bunny’s and colored eggs.. They will share the day with family, and the less fortunate.. Celebrating the life of Jesus, in country’s where their belief is not welcomed.. They gather what they have to share with others who walk to their home and enjoy a Resurrection Sunday meal.
There will be singing, and sharing a word of hope with many who had nothing to bring.. Children and widows who have no means of support are welcomed and made to feel like one of the family. In a world where they are considered outcasts, they gather in His name, and welcome the heavy-hearted, and those who have much burden. It is a time of rejoicing, and counting of blessings, and the candy and toy’s are traded for so much more..
You may celebrate in your own way, but no matter how you gather, I hope it is a day filled with love and great joy. I see my friends with so little, how they find enough peace and joy to share with so many.. and it makes my heart smile. 🙂
~ Matthew 11:28-30 ~ Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
