It seems that about this time everyone is picking up the Easter Spirit!!! And I see new blogs about Easter coming on and that is exciting that many are excited with what this Season represents!!! ["...1Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. 2And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. 3But if any man love God, the same is known of him..."] Now our Catholic freinds are big with Easter and Passion Week and that is wonderful!!! And if we think Oh!!! Look at them!!! We do not understand Easter at all!!! And Easter is totally opposite, when the leaven become unleavened and the lifted, humble!!! Now how are we going to achieve that and get off our high horse of 'knowledge' and become charitable like Christ???!!! Now I know and you know the truth and that is wonderful!!! But why is Easter hard on those who know the truth, and but Paul says, "And if any man think that he knowest any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know!!! What a deflation of high-mindness!!! And Easter is about having a peaceful moment to remeber God that we too at sometime did not know as we should have and were dead lost in our thoughts and reasonings!!! And what does Easter say, to remember that at one time we too walked in the wrong road!!! And it was not until the mercy of God came that we began to know something and even him in heaven!!! And it is no mystery that when Jesue to bread about this time, he gave thanks for the privilidge to partake the bread of the truth and did not think of himself and anything but a fellow subject of God sharing the humanity of man, but he gave thanks, because he knew the truth was nothing but a privilidge to have and partake!!! And we should learn that message and know that we should give thanks for all the wonderful blessing to know the truth and to remember God, the author of all gift and even the sheer good thing to be of the truth!!! May you be blessed. Amen. thbg

Thank you brother 'iraqivetsgtret' for you kind comment. And I just kind of marvel at reading your blog in this same subject of the real meaning of Easter and what kind of attitude show we bring to the table, when we sit down and share the meal with Christ and our fellows- far and near!!!
ps. God loves you!!!
