O is for Ottava Rima - Opinion on Easter

It is true that Easter means so many things
If you will indulge I would like to share
It is much more then eggs the bunny brings
To me it is important that there is prayer
Remember Resurrection on angel wings
Just my opinion, making you aware
While the eggs and baskets are in season
Please don’t forget the ultimate reason

  1. The holidays become so much more gimmick and about Sales lately than what they really are meant to be. It's fine to have all that but like you said here beautifully, they must remember the reason for it all:-) Stop in & read O is for Orion

  2. Was at the movies, last night. There were crowds of people coming in dressed in Sunday best. They were going to a feature Spanish film celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus. It was good to see so many still recognize the purpose of Easter. Thanks for sharing.
