There’s quite a few country songs about needing a beer, some of them are among my favourites. What I’m trying to get at is that sometimes things happen that leave us needing a beer or just a simple coffee. Easter is right around the corner and it’s not about some bunny that lays some chocolate ears, but about the Saviour’s ultimate sacrifice for our sins and rising again for our redemption/salvation, should we choose to get down on our knees and accept it…Although it’s more of the Creator choosing us, but I’ll leave that for theology masters to duke it out. I’m just as guilty as the next person and I’ll readily admit that if I can, but I just want to get that out there. Sometimes, all the worries of this world make me want to sit down and grab a cold root beer or a coffee to just let the worries drift right off of me.
It takes a mind that’s open to even think about this kind of stuff and, being a stubborn person myself, it can also take some time…It’s not light decision. Over the years, I’ve come to realize that live is more of a battle, thanks to pride & all the crap that mainstream society & the radical fringes throw at us, but, in the end, we’ve all got to really struggle against it, but thankfully the power isn’t something that we have to do on our own. With Easter, it’s about seeing that there’s more to it than all the chocolate that we’re bombarded with and realizing life isn’t always about us, something I’m so guilty of doing every now & then. With that said, there’s something to be said for not buying into the hype over all the chocolates on sale and maybe, just maybe, we might avoid a massive sugar crash.
Easter is also a great time to get together with family and, if you’re far out from them for most of the year (unlike I am), it’s kind of a catch-up time after Christmas. Family’s more than just biological family because it’s the kind of people that you can get along with & trust and/or lean on in times of struggle…And ask their honest opinions of when it comes to certain decisions. Getting back to the title of this post, I just have to say that we need more than a drink, something that really gets to the heart of the matter and I believe that’s where Easter comes in.
