[wrapped Gift]

Finished watching the Jesus movie (’99 one) as always with a wide grin on my face. I can’t help it, the resurrection scene never ceases to inspire such joy in my heart that all I can do is grin.

Considering that a lot of my friends have celebrated Christmas yesterday (over here we celebrate Christmas on 7th of January), I have been thinking about it a lot. All this “presents / gifts” talk made me think: the Gift was indeed given to us on CHRISTmas… Yet, it remained wrapped on Christmas morning 2,000+ years ago.

It was unwrapped 33 years later, on Easter. That was when the Gift demonstrated what it can do – the very reason He was given to us.

Therefore, if I had to choose the holiday I like better (even though one without the other would not make any sense) I would choose Easter – the Resurrection day when the Gift was unwrapped, only linens remained folded neatly.

    Hoo Ha Ha.

    (Which is me agreeing with you about the holidays.)

  • You have an agree-er here Zee. While Christmas holds the promise, Easter fulfills it. Too bad there is so much fanfare for both.

  • When I speak of fanfare I am meaning all the commercialization not the real Story. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • I like Christmas then Easter. Like you said, God's gift was given on Christmas. Christ's whole life was a gift. He showed us how to live and then provided us with the way to do so.

    • J, yes – Jesus’ life was a gift given on CHRISTmas but still it was unwrapped fully on Easter because before that fateful Sonday morning, people could only see bits and pieces of the full value…

      I guess it can be also described as the Gift being given on CHRISTmas, but the full description came later ๐Ÿ™‚
