Sunday:) Happy Easter:) Resurrection, Renewal, Revival

2 Apr

“The symbolic language of the crucifixion is the death of the old paradigm; resurrection is a leap into a whole new way of thinking.”

~Deepak Chopra

Christianity is not rationalism, but faith in God’s revelation. A conspicuous, all-important item in that revelation is the resurrection of the body. Edward McKendree Bounds

Happy Easter everyone. I hope you had a good day. I certainly did. I started out very early, greeting at Mass, smiling, hugging, and shaking hands with friends and strangers at church.

Easter Sunday, for us Catholics and Christians, is the most important day of all. The resurrection of Our Lord after being crucified, suffering death, buried, then the miraculous resurrection. Easter always makes me think about the sacrifice, the love, and the gift we humans have been given by our creator. I also tend to analyze the definition of the words we use.

There are many meanings and definitions for the word resurrection…

res·ur·rec·tion  (rĕz′ə-rĕk′shən)

n.1.a. The act of restoring a dead person, for example, to life.

b. The condition of having been restored to life.

2. ResurrectionChristianity

a. The return of Jesus to life on the third day after the Crucifixion.

b. The restoration of the dead to life at the Last Judgment.

3. The act of bringing back to practice, notice, use, or vibrancy; revival: the resurrection of an old custom; the resurrection of a decrepit neighborhood.

This made me think about my own life. Today is the perfect time for my own personal resurrection. Not dying and coming back to life in the literal sense, but a REVIVAL, bringing back a VIBRANCY or LIFE back into my world. Time for a change, starting fresh. Easter and Spring and renewal go hand-in-hand.

After church, I stopped at Sprouts for my weekly fix of fruits and vegetables. They have the best sales. Walnuts on sale $3.99 a pound. Wow! I bought three pounds.

While I was leaving the store, I noticed a Fantastic Sam’s Hair Salon right next door. They were open. A sign… Hmm???

What better way to start anew, a change, a renewal and resurrection? Time for a haircut. I’ve had long frizzy curly bothersome hair for over 50 years. Time for an extreme change. Just Do It, as Mr. Nike would say. So, I did it. Chopped it all off.

What do you think?????

It’s short and sassy and makes me look ten years younger. I love it!

So, not to have missed my special day, I hope you enjoyed my little story and joke. NO! I didn’t cut my hair that short. Actually, my hair is so goofy and curly, it would never look that good short. I took this picture at Mom’s house last year. I was fooling around with her and put on one of her many red wigs that she had in her closet. I said, “Look, my name is Grandma.” We both laughed. But, I did look a little like my sweet mother. I’m sure she’s smiling down from heaven now.

This is how I looked today and will look tomorrow. You decide. Should I go for the haircut for real???

    Loved the short red hair. I really believed you did something drastic!

    You have such pretty hair, I’m sure it would look great at almost any length!
