Easter Greetings!

I know I'm way behind on blogging.  I even missed the Spring Equinox!  Although I have to admit I like the Solstices better, especially the winter one, when days start to get longer.  We're still in that day-lengthening stage.  
Today, however, something else was on my mind:
Taking a moment to remember how blessed we are to be the recipients of God's amazing grace--truly One Way Love! While we were still sinners, he died for us!
Wishing you all a Happy Easter & blessed Passover, for that is the time that God showed how he would set us free from the bondage of sin and death. A sacrificial lamb protected the Hebrews from the Angel of Death, and our Passover Lamb of God has done the same thing for us.

Did you know that the date of Easter depends on when the first full moon of Spring falls?  That's why its date varies so much from year to year!  Why is this how it's dated? you ask.  I'm not sure, but I think it has something to do with when Passover falls, and the Jewish calendar is a lunar one, unlike the Julian Calendar we follow now.

Anyway, hope the sun shines warmly wherever you are.
