Resurrection

Resurrection

Resurrection is the concept of coming back to life afterdeath. In a number of ancient religions, a dying and rising god is a deity which dies and resurrects. The death and resurrection of Jesus, an example of resurrection, is the central focus of Christianity.

As a religious concept, it is used in two distinct respects: a belief in the resurrection of individual souls that is current and ongoing, or else a belief in a singularresurrection of the dead at theend of the world. The resurrection of the dead is a standard belief in the Abrahamic religions.

Some believe the soul is the actual vehicle by which people are resurrected.

 

Easter,also called Pascha (Greek, Latin)or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the the resurrection ofJesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. It is the culmination of thePassion of Jesus, preceded by Lent, a forty-day period of fasting prayer, and penance.

 

The Easter Bunny (also called the Easter Rabbit or Easter Hare) is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter, depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs. Originating among German Lutherans, the "Easter Hare" originally played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behaviour at the start of the season of Eastertide.

 

Easter eggs, also called Paschal eggs are decorated eggs tat are usually used as gifts on the occasion of Easter or springtime celebration. The oldest tradition is to use dyed and painted chicken eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute chocolate eggs wrapped in colourful foil, or plastic eggs filled with chcocolate. Although eggs, in general, were a

traditional symbol of fertility and rebirth, in Christianity, Easter eggs symbolize the empty tomb of Jesus from which Jesus resurrected. In addition, one ancient tradition was the staining of Easter eggs with the colour red "in memory of the blood of Christ, shed as at that time of his crucifixion. This custom of the Easter egg can be traced to Mesopotamia (Goddess Ishtar).Happy Easter ! Festival of eggs.

Well, my plans changed today or should I say they were cancelled. I sat lost for a few hours, lost in thought, lost in the moment. It was a lovely thing. I realize I can change and go forward with some nice freedom, inspired by this story. I stopped a moment and wrote this comment and now I go.

Nice recount! Dreams are an interesting glance into our minds and seem quite elusive for me, remembering dreaming and forgetting the content most times. Is there something I am missing? Probably

good rules vs bad rulesFollowing rules was extreme programming from infancy for me. First rule: You are here to help your mother, You are the servant of your family. I was taught to be an adult as an infant and only recently found the un-nurtured infant inside. In finding my infant I was able to stop crying for what seemed to be no reason.
