Question Of The Week, 4/8/07

Good morning, and Happy Easter. I'm sure some of you will spend this day with family and friends. There will be some great meals served. The kids might hunt for eggs or candy. Some of them will get gifts. A great time for all. This weeks Question Of The Week is. How many of you will do something special to help your guests remember or to teach the children why this is a special day?

I'll post my answer in the Comment Section Monday night.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Except for the pre-meal blessing, probably not at the family gathering. Family members will already have done their Resurrection Day celebrating earlier in the day.

This afternoon, the family will gather at Claudia's house for Easter dinner. We'll be under a cloud; her kidney surgery is scheduled for April 30, at which point we'll find out if that kidney tumor is cancer.

Of course, none of us know if this will be the last Easter we celebrate in this life. As Dad used to say, "Anything can happen to any of us, any time." Despite that fact, we usually go about our earthly lives as if we'll always be here.

I had planned to go to the Lincoln Memorial for the sunrise service this morning. But it's too cold! My neurologist has advised me not to be our in the cold because that further agitates my sciatica.

I don't celebrate Easter since I got too old to do egg hunts. But I would like to make a suggestion for parents for the future: Buy only cage-free eggs and free trade chocolate. Explain to your kids why this is important.

First I want to thank you for stopping by to answer this weeks question. I'm a little late myself, it's now Tuesday morning.How many of you will do something special to help your guests remember or to teach the children why this is a special day?
I can still remember Easter at my Grand-Mother and Grand-Fathers house. The family all got together for an Easter egg hunt. Right after Church and the Easter Dinner that came with a prayer. A few years ago some of my co-workers voted to give up our Easter Holiday to get two days off at Thanksgiving. Most of the people that voted for this get Sundays off, I have to work Sunday. So on Easter Sunday I try to watch The Passion Of Christ before work and spend as much time as possible thinking about the life of Christ.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.
