Today something made my heart hurt.
I was sitting in my Political Science class.
And two seats away was a boy and his friend.
They were talking about how excited they were for the 3 day weekend.
But then one said:
"What's the point of Easter, anyways?"
"I mean, there's the bunny, the eggs, the baskets?"
"Wait, Is that when Jesus did something?"
And the tears welled in my eyes.
I understand that some people don't believe in God.
Or they do, but they don't know their faith.
But that made my heart sink low in my chest.
It is when Jesus did something.
He did something big.
He died because He loves you.
And He wants to know you.
Stranger, you're in my prayers.
I hope you open your heart.
This weekend is more than a break from school and work.
It's bigger than me and it's bigger than you.
It's about love.
Undying, unfailing, unconditional love.
I hope you know how loved you all are.
And I hope you appreciate the world full of beauty you've been blessed with.
I love my faith.
But I do respect others.
I hope that no matter what you believe, you feel the same joy that I do.
All of you are always in my thoughts and prayers.
Have a wonderful Friday.
