It's not about the Bunny!

A Great piece from Jim about Easter and its real meaning…..
When a pilot prepares for a flight he preforms the various checks to ensure a success. In preparation for a run athletes often go through stretching exercises. For centuries Christians have prepared to observe Easter with a time of fasting or Lent.
 As Christians we know what it looks like to prepare for Christmas. We have all the familiar symbols, the tree, the lights, the wreath – – the GIFTS!
The gifts at this time represent the gifts given to Christ at his birth.
 At Easter there are few deeply meaningful symbols with which to celebrate.
Easter is different – Easter is when we celebrate the day Jesus rose from the dead to give the “GIFT” of eternal life to each of us who believe.
 I would ask in the coming weeks that in preparation for Easter, the “GMM Board” we take time to truly focus on Jesus, recognize his presence in our lives, observe the cross and appreciate his amazing “GIFT”.
 For – – “In His great mercy He has given us new birth unto a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 1:3”
 God Bless,
