Easter Sunday


Easter Sunday to many Christians means redemption from past sins. To millions more, however, it is redemption from our past in general. The mistakes we made which include those not as grave as sin. Covered also would be omissions or the failure to do.
When we realize such, particularly those that deeply affected other peoples’ lives in a bad way, we stew or even wish to roast ourselves.
In a lesser way we feel the same when we make major life mistakes resulting in long running problems. Or bothersome thoughts of what could have been. The worst are those on careers or the choice of a life partner. Fueled by strong feelings of guilt these can be eating us up or our better judgement. It would be tantamount to a difficult quagmire from which to extricate oneself appears to be an impossibility.
But for those with a more positive outlook, they exert the necessary effort to make up for it. It can include atonement or just more exertion and determination to achieve what should have been achieved before.
That is what Easter Sunday symbolizes. It is a process to bring back our life ship on an even keel.
In the end, we realize there is no such a thing as a mistake. Even the most embarrassing error in life when looked at in a positive way, is a treasure trove of life lessons to make us better persons. The end results are maturity or a broader and more humane outlook.
Such are immortalized in poetic expressions as the bright light at the end of a dark tunnel.
Easy to say but the process always entails a lot of long running pain until we are finally humbled or forced to swallow our pride and accept the realities of our situation. Such acceptance enables us to see the glitter of a diamond earlier thought to be just a muddy stone.
