Easter is coming
I love everything about Easter. I grew up with the true meaning of Easter, since my mother is from Panama and the Easter bunny does not exist there. Easter morning was always a hurried breakfast followed by going to church. The church that I grew up going to was beautiful and one of the oldest buildings in town. As a child I was so excited to wear my new Easter outfit that my mom usually made for me, and couldn't wait to see what everyone else was wearing, because in my day, everyone dressed up for Easter. It was always such a wonderful site for me to see all the girls wearing their Easter finery. It looked as if the whole church was in bloom with many shades of pastel, and all the little girls look like spring flowers.
I still believe that the religious aspect is top priority and the rest is just for fun,but also celebrates the beauty of spring and the promise of new life. So, I leave you with a few pictures of the coming holiday.
