Easter Messages

Happy Easter!
Today My cellphone kept on buzzing with Easter Messages.
The messages are warm, well crafted, and its impact is distrbed only by the thought that probably this was just a message forwarded already a hundred times.
Worse, the thought that probably these beautifulm poetic Easter messages emanated from the telecom giants themselves and broadcast for the gulible subscribers to forward to their friends.
In short, its actually, the Easter test messages is another innovative commercialization of the commemoration of the Lord's ressurection.
In any event, I force myself to think these were genuined Easter greetings sent from one brethren to another.
If thought this way, the Easter text message bring greater meaning.
Here are some of the Easter text messages I received today, messages which you yourself might have received also:

Holy Week Reflections:
1.) Sometimes, God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
2.) Sometimes, He sends us pain so we can be stronger.
3.) Sometimes, He sends us failure so we can be humble.
4.) Sometimes, He sends us illness so we can take better care of ourselves.
5.) Sometimes, he takes "EVERYTHING" away so we can learn thevalue of 'EVERYTHING: we have.

He is Risen. May the blessings of the Risen Christ remain with you and loved ones always.
Happy Easter!

Like birds, let us leave behind what we don;t need to carry - grudges, sadness, pain, fears, & regrets. Fly light. LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL by design...Happy Easter!

Happy Easter.
