Ta Da! The Cadbury Bunny has arrived which means it's Easter Sunday. Guess there won't be many little ones hunting Easter Eggs at the John G. Miller Park today--not with the rain coming down in buckets. This blogger sincerely hopes that Millerites took advantage of the sunshine yesterday to participate in the Miller's Annual Bunny Hop and Egg Hunt. Today, the church parking lots were filled to overflowing as is the norm on Easter Sunday, although if you only drag yourself to church twice a year (Christmas and Easter) you might want to examine your faith a little closer. Seeing everyone dressed in their Easter finery brings back memories of childhood. Scratchy suits, wrinkly tights, hats, and white gloves, all stained with streaks of fresh green after rummaging through the tall newly sprouted grass looking for Easter eggs. Strictly speaking, for Christians, Easter Sunday should bring thoughts of our Savior--His love, His sacrifice, His death, His resurrection. But we live in America where religion and commercialism have blended over the decades. As families gather around the Easter Ham (turkey, chicken, lamb, goose, or whatever) hopefully they will remember that this day has a deeper meaning than chocolate bunnies, Peeps, and dyed eggs. Having said all that, this blogger is off to supervise the family celebration. The rain may keep us from hunting eggs, but it won't stop us from celebrating this special day together.

Meanwhile, give a little extra encouragement to our school kids. The state tests are upon us. From now until May our students will be tested in Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies. The jury is still out on whether these test are appropriate or not--not that the state of Texas cares for the average Joe's opinion on these things. The reality is our kids must take these test, so let's do all we can to encourage them and support their teachers. Nuff said.
