Last weekend was Easter break, it was a good time for students because they got a one week break, and it was also a good time to think about how Jesus Christ died for us on the cross, then he was risen.
It was my first Easter here, and I joined the traditional Good Friday service and Easter Sunday service at Grace Church, St. Louis. I spent many times to think about Jesus’s death on Good Friday, and prayed with God. I like to spend time praying and studying the bible, which can let me be renewed by God.
Here is one of verses for celebrating the Easter Day. Take time to think about it:
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3)
Woohoo!!!! It’s almost Easter, and I am ready for it! I don’t know why, but this semester has been brutal for all parties involved. The few days of classes from which I will be free (which is really only one) will probably be devoted to homework. Don’t get me wrong, I will be spending time with my family. I think we’re having Easter at my house, and I am so excited to spend some much needed down time with my family. Even though we no longer hunt for Easter eggs on Easter, my family does get together for a big meal.
I start my day off by going to Church with my family and watching as the pews fill up. Then, depending on how much needs to be done before everybody starts filtering in, I might take a nap (we go to Mass at 7 a.m., what do you expect?). Then when everybody is there we filter through a buffet style line of food. The adults and “kids” (ages 18-24) sit and eat at different tables. Of course the kids’ table is more fun because that’s where I sit.
