He is risen! He is risen indeed!
For Christians all over the world, this is our BIG day—after all, we are the Easter People. Although celebrations are limited as we watch Easter services from our couch without our extended family, Easter is still the Hallelujah Day when we celebrate our belief that Christ died for us on Friday and rose from the dead on Sunday. Later, thousands witnessed Jesus’ resurrection as He walked the familiar paths prior to His ascension.
I’m celebrating the secular and religious Easter. I’m dressing up (even putting make-up on), joining our church congregation on Facebook live, enjoying a special ham dinner at a table laden with flowers, bunnies, and china. We are the Easter People!
Affirmation: Nothing can keep me from celebrating Easter!
Coaching questions: If you’re a Christian, how are you celebrating Easter? What’s one good thing you’re experiencing in these unusual times?

A friend started a texting group of 20 people called OPN (Old people Network). We text throughout the day staying connected by discussing the many varieties of Jello, how to make a mask, what to make for dinner, just staying in touch. We only have 20 because that is the limit in a group. We wake up with the message as to what day it is and maybe a short weather report. This has been a life-line for me. I bless the person who started us down this adventure. And the participants. This morning we were virtually hiding our eggs. We celebrated by attending worship on-line. The church staff created a video that can be viewed at any time. This is the 4th week in a row. WOW. Even though this is better than nothing, I miss the fellowship of Sunday morning in church. We are also having a ZOOM meeting on Wednesdays. That is attended by some of the same people but there are also others attending too. That group has met 2 times. So bless the developers of the technology that has allowed us to better survive this Corvid-19.
