Daily Inspiration: Holiday Values
On the Friday afternoon before the Easter/Passover weekend, the office was in holiday mode, not much work was getting done. Julie asked Gary what his plans were for Easter. Somehow he knew she wasn’t asking about church attendance, it was the big meal they were discussing.
The divorced dad with two young daughters surprised Julie with his answer: He was having his family over, twenty-two people in all. How interesting that this young man would host the big Easter dinner. Julie considers herself an enlightened woman. She’s hip to the latest trends and inclusive of different lifestyles. Her husband is often the one preparing a meal or cleaning the apartment. Yet she never considered a major holiday dinner that didn’t have a Mom in the kitchen.
She pressed on. “What are you making?” Gary told her he’s serving the usual fare, ham, turkey, and sweet potato casserole. Julie noticed a subtle hint in his response. “Serving?” she asked. He replied, “I’m not actually cooking, I ordered everything in from Boston Market.” She breathed a sigh of relief, she’s not sure why.
Traditions evolve with the changing dynamics of the modern family. A single dad makes sure that his clan has a place to gather at Easter. It honors the very reason we celebrate religious holidays, to serve God by living His values. May love and family sustain you this weekend and throughout the year. Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy springtime!

The true way to love in continuous flow with the angels is to adopt the "gratitude attitude." When we are grateful to be alive the world no longer seems like a place of doom; it becomes a beautiful, unfolding landscape of Heaven.
