The best part of my Easter day


We were invited to our friends house for dinner,which itself was a blessing as our friend is recovering from brain surgery and we have much to give thanks for.   However, on the way there I stopped at a 7-eleven to buy dessert. On the way out as I headed towards my car I heard

Can you spare any change?

I remembered something that I had in my car.  I went to my boot (US=trunk) and fished out a ‘blessing-in-a-bag‘ kit.  I went back and gave the guy sitting on the floor the bag and just said

Happy Easter

he replied

God bless you

Indeed it was I who was truly blessed to share in this Holy moment.  As I pulled out of the parking lot he was already drinking the bottle of water and had a smile on his face.

The best part of Easter Day was seeing the face of the resurrected Lord sitting outside a 7-eleven.

Christ is Risen. Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! He is Risen indeed.
