The true Easter mean­ing

Isis Town and Country - - OPINION - By LORETTA TARDA

What will Easter time mean for you?

As there are many things we can do.

Is it that beach hol­i­day break,

So many fam­i­lies en­joy to take?

Maybe a dance, or trip to an Easter fair,

With lots of fun, for all to share?

There’s the pop­u­lar hot cross buns to buy,

Along with the Easter eggs in plen­ti­ful sup­ply.

For Chris­tians though, it’s about the Easter pas­sion,

Some­thing that doesn’t go out of fash­ion.

With Je­sus nailed to the cross on Cal­vary’s Hill,

This story lives on, and re­minds us still.

For when we lose our loved ones, We trust their fate to God. Know­ing He’s been watch­ing over, Ev­ery step they tread. The Easter cel­e­bra­tion brings hope for ev­ery­one to­day,

Be­cause Christ de­feated death in his ag­o­nis­ing way.

His res­ur­rec­tion is the sign, that one day we will see,

All those gone be­fore, and will meet in eter­nity.

Our Chris­tian faith teaches, that Je­sus is the way,

So we stop and re­flect at Easter and we also pray.
