That’s what it’s all about: Easter

Sprite’s Easter holiday homework was to write an essay with the title ‘That’s what it’s all about!’ It really made me think! For Christians Easter is the celebration of the events that are at the very core of our faith – that Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday and rose again in accordance with the scriptures in order to reconcile mankind with God. It is best summed up by the ‘Gospel in a nutshell’ verse John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever believes in Him should not die but have eternal life.

For Christians Easter = that’s what it’s all about!

Sprite was very pleased with herself. “I have done my Easter holiday homework already!” she said. “Now I can enjoy the holidays.”

“That’s very creative…” I said.

“I know” said Sprite. “Imaginational Dabrowski helped me.”

“You might need to write a bit more to explain it” I said.

“Isn’t it obvious?” asked Sprite. “In The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy 42 is the answer to everything and in the Hokey Pokey song it says ‘You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn around and that’s what it’s all about’. See, I even put the references in the footnotes.”

“I’m SO sorry!” said Intellectual Dabrowski. “I tried to help her! I really did!” “She was supposed to write an Easter essay titled ‘That’s what it’s all about’. I told her about what all the great thinkers, the philosophers and poets and scientists had said about the meaning of life and supplied all the references. And she said “Oh blah, blah, blah” and asked Imaginational to help her!”

There is great rejoicing in the Tweet family and among their Twitter bird friends today.

Tweetelle’s caterpillar pet which was thought to be dead only a couple of days ago has emerged from its chrysalis as a beautiful Monarch butterfly!

It has been photographed by Kenneth Dwain Harrelson and the image included in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monarch_butterfly

And Tweetelle has been promised that she can have another caterpillar pet.

“You know,” said Pastor Twitter Bird “This happening has many similarities to the events of Good Friday and the first Easter Sunday!”
