To worship my God

You need never visit church

Nature’s His temple

13 Mar

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog. It’s Haiku Friday! Thanks for visiting. Once again my prompt words come from RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge If you enjoy haiku poetry you should definitely visit his blog. Many people participate in the weekly challenges and they share the link to their haiku on his page and Ronovan also features the haiku poems on the weekend. The prompt words today are Miss and Past. I thought of Easter for some reason and this is what I came up with.

Goddess of spring past

bunnies and eggs her symbols

Easter was then born


Missed in the Eddas

Mischievous St Bede

Conjured her being


Did she exist once?

Dancing while the flowers bloomed

The wiccans think so





Do you celebrate Easter? If so what do you do on Easter Sunday? What does Easter represent to you?

Easter, the Christian Holiday that celebrates Jesus Christ’s resurrection is held the first Sunday after the Blood Moon this year (which was actually on Palm Sunday). I find this fascinating for some reason. Easter is celebrated after a 40 day period called Lent in which observers practice fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. During Lent Christians are supposed to emulate the actions of Jesus Christ and reflect on his life, death and resurrection.

So where do the cute little chicks and bunnies come in? Why do kids hunt for eggs? Like in almost every Christian religious holiday there’s a commercial aspect that stems from pagan religions– in this case, the celebration of Spring. You can read about this association here.

Here are some touching quotes about Easter:  (WARNING: Some of these will make you cry)




A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Easter is very important to me, it’s a second chance.” ~ Reba McEntire





Earth’s saddest day and gladdest day were just three days apart!” ~ Susan Coolidge

Susan Coolidge-Easter-Vashti Q-Vega

If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus’ fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness; not by force but by sacrifice. Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him.” ~ A. W. Tozer
