just easter?

10 Apr

today, i overheard a conversation that really made my heart hurt. it went something like this…

person a: “i wonder if the banks are closed today?”

person b: “i don’t know, i know the schools are closed.”

person c: “its just easter. its not a holiday, so i bet they are open.”

wow. i don’t think the word JUST and EASTER should ever be put together in a sentence like that. it made me mad at first and then very sad. my heart hurts for people who don’t understand and fully grasp the significance of easter. 

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…” 1 Peter 1:3
