|With all the sparkle and shine of Valentine's Day passing into distant history, the next holiday celebrating the decadent chocolate extravagance would be Easter?
Often, though we pick our favorite kind of chocolate bunny, there are many other kinds of chocolate that might be more decadent for this holiday. Consider a white chocolate cheese cake with raspberry sauce, or a 7 layer chocolate cake with white coconut frosting? How about a rack of lamb with savory chocolate sauce or hot cross buns with chocolate drizzle?
When I hear the many comments about chocolate, or dressing up for the parties, or hunting Easter eggs, I wonder if we've forgotten what Easter is all about. It's not the dress you wear, or the kind of hat you buy, or even whether or not you wear white shoes... It is about the risen Christ. Christ arose on the morning we now celebrate as Easter Sunday.
A savior, born on Christmas, raised by a carpenter, taught in the synagogues and walked the roads of Galilee, hung on a cross on Calvary and rose again, three days later, to save your soul from eternal damnation. That's what Easter is all about.
The Rich Delicious Decadence of lives well lived, where giving to others is greater than giving to self, where loving brings more reward than being loved. Marketing the lifestyle of Christianity brings satisfaction and gratitude. The understanding of gratitude and when to be grateful brings the delicious satisfaction of knowing you can have the miracle of salvation, forgiveness and gratitude.
Just invite the savior into your life and experience the wonder.
