When I make a blog post, I always try to find a suitable picture to begin with. This morning I typed in the word "Easter." Of the three pages of images that I scrolled through, there were 5 pictures of Jesus. The rest of the pictures were of collared eggs, bunnies and chickens. I thought that was rather interesting.
The comedian, Eddie Izzard once tried to make a connection between the chocolate of the eggs with the brown wood of the cross.
In the Czech Republic, it is tradition for guys to run through the towns and whack girls on their backsides with a switch. The girls reciprocate by either throwing a bucket of water on the boy, or spraying them in the face with perfume. Odd, to say the least.

Just some of the thoughts in my head this morning. But the sun is coming up. It's in the bottom of the pine trees behind my house.

I forget so easily how much a lack of sun affects & effects me. I forget all the time. I even forgot this morning...until I saw it peaking through the trees. But I'll probably forget again in no time. But the sun is coming up. It is rising.
The Son has come up. He has risen.
