Every time we walked by it, I thought about that statement. It gave me a new perspective on this spring holiday that’s meaning sometimes gets clouded by a rabbit carrying baskets.
My life has felt new lately. A recent promotion at a job I actually really enjoy has given me some hope of getting out of the financial hole I have spent the last two years in. New responsibilities at the job, although sometimes chaotic and a little overwhelming, have also been challenging and fun. It feels good to be needed and appreciated. These will be the parts of my new life that I am going to be thankful for and celebrate this Sunday.
Thinking you have the same old life and nothing to celebrate? You don’t need a new job, a cross country move or a new baby to have a “new life”. Finding a great new restaurant, making a new friend, discovering a new song, are all mini-new lives. All things we should be grateful for.
I think everyone, regardless of their religious beliefs, should celebrate this Sunday. If not Happy Easter, then Happy New Life!
