Just Something I have Been Pondering....

Hello All,

Well let me get right to it. For a few days now, I have been wondering about somethings. 1.) Where am I gonna work when I move back to Houston, 2.) what part of town Ill be living in 3.) what I'm going to eat that day 4.)why cant I fall asleep like I used to and 5.) why is it that most churches I have been to over the years have Easter egg hunts after their Easter Sunday services? OK, don't get me wrong, my heart smiles when I see the kiddies running to grab these colorful, pastel, eggs filled with candy and sometimes money (speaking of the eggs being filled with money I hope they are not using my tithes and offerings to fill these eggs.) And I have nothing against after service Easter eggs hunts for the children, its just something I was pondering. So everyone knows every Christian Church service in America is going to be talking about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday, and how He died on the cross for our sins. Thank You Jesus! And how this day is not about commercializing Easter and bringing a bunny rabbit in to replace the real reason behind the holiday. I just find it interesting that after all that, by the end of the service; fields, parking lots, and picnic areas are speckled with pastel colored Easter eggs, sending children on a scavenger hunt to participate in a commercialized activity that has nothing to do with Jesus, and goes against the very thing that some preachers preach against. Again, don't get me wrong, I would never deprive my child of participating in a Easter egg hunt after a church service. I'm not against the hunt. My point is more about the preachers that preach on Easter Sunday about how Easter is not about the bunny rabbits, its about what Jesus did for us, yet they have Easter eggs hunts on the Church grounds. Things that make me go hmmmmm?? With all due respect to the preachers Im talking about, if you know you are going to talk about how Easter is not about the bunny rabbit, then don't have an Easter egg hunt for the children after church service. Its just a little strange to me. Just omit that part out of your sermon. That way you can have the Easter egg activities for the chil'ren, and not look like a hypocrite. Im just sayin'!

    You're a trip. I plan on celebrating "easter" from the comfort of my living room. I'm over the whole "I don't go to church during the year and only show my face on Easter and Christmas like nobody is noticing..." Not to mention how crowded and annoying it was for me (when I was going every Sunday) to have randoms taking up my space and air because they thought they were fooling somebody. lol...
