Easter is about having hope.
Easter is about the tomb being empty and a dead revolutionary walking and having conversations with people, letting them touch the holes in his hands, feet, and side.
Easter is about God defeating Satan, sin, evil, and death.
Easter is about the promise that one day, those of us in Christ will join him in paradise.
Easter is about the promise that one day all our tears, struggles, and work will be worth it. Not because we somehow earned the right to be in his presence, but because this life that we live is just a sliver of the eternity he promises us.
So Happy Easter.
Now resume opening plastic eggs and working your way into a diabetic coma. Mmm sugar.
