"One man, living again in his home state, surrounded by territory once rife with Conservatives,
and now hijacked by imported Liberals. This is the product of a self-imposed duty to continue to speak my Traditionalist Values
despite the Left's proliferation, procreation and perpetual regurgitation."

"One woman, living in a southern state, invaded by liberal policies, where strong Conservatives
were once revered. Proudly clinging to my guns. Proudly singing to my God."

The Rising

The true meaning of Easter is not defined by the Crucifixion, it is Divined by the Resurrection. While most Christians are already reflecting upon our bounty of faith and the rising of Jesus Christ, perhaps the events of this week can also serve as gentle reminders for each of us to remember those special people, within our own lives, who continue to 'raise us up' each day.

"Each of us should please his neighbor for his good, to build him up." Romans 15:2

There have been special people, throughout my life, who have raised me up spiritually, physically, emotionally, and intellectually. There are those people who have helped me to raise that proverbial bar within my life - and there have been people who undoubtedly have prompted me to raise my standards. I have been fortunate to have met people who have encouraged me to raise my hand, in order to be seen - to raise my voice, in order to be heard - and to raise my consciousness, in order to become more aware. I have been blessed to know people who have inspired me to laugh more loudly - and to love more deeply. And within this, the Season of Resurrection, I am reflecting upon the most special people who selflessly raise me up each day. I would like to encourage all of you to remember the special people within your own lives. Those who calm your soul, create your joy and lift your spirits.†

"You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up, to more than I can be...."

While I was thinking about the true meaning of Easter, I recalled this sweet story:

A group of four-year old children attended a Sunday School class. It was one week before Easter and the teacher wanted to know how many children truly understood the meaning of the Easter season.

She asked the children:
"Does anyone know what day we are celebrating today?"

One little girl excitedly waved her hand and said, "Yes, I know! Today is Palm Sunday!!" The teacher smiled and said, "That's right. Now, can anyone tell me what day we will be celebrating next Sunday...?"

The same little girl raised her hand and said "Yes, I know! Next Sunday is Easter Sunday." The teacher nodded her head and said, "Yes, very good! Now, does anyone know why we celebrate Easter Sunday?" The little girl quickly leapt to her feet and exclaimed, "Yes. I know! Next Sunday is Easter Sunday - and we celebrate it because Jesus rose from the grave....." As the teacher began to congratulate the little girl for understanding the true meaning of Easter - she was quickly interrupted as the little girl finished explaining....

"Jesus rose from the grave ....but if he sees his shadow - he has to go back inside for seven weeks."

May we find the true meaning of Easter by seeking a better understanding of the messages that are always evident within our hearts.
