It is hard to believe that Easter and Fiesta is upon us WOW! when did it sneak up on us.
I look forward to Easter, Spending it with family and friends, enjoying the bar-b-ques and listening to the laughter of the children with excitement as they approach the Easter egg hunt, and the adults preparing for a fun relaxing day listening to music and some even dancing.
What I enjoy is seeing the grownups and kids chasing each other with cascarones to crack on each others head, even us grown ups behave like kids and that’s OK.
But what is most important to me is the real reason why we celebrate Easter, so before I go and join my family I look forward to starting my day by attending church service in the morning and Thanking God for his son, who gave his life for me.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ and knowing that he is everywhere I go, and feeling his presence with the Holy Spirit is what I find why it is important to celebrate Easter Sunday.
I share this with you because I find it so important that you share it with your loved ones especially the younger generation who may not know the meaning of Easter Sunday.
If you don’t make it to Sunday church gather your family where ever you may be spending your beautiful sunday and hold hands and together give thanks to Jesus Christ for giving you what you have and another day here on earth to be able to enjoy your day.
The Blessings that he showers upon you are moments of celebration and this is how the Fun begins, it begins with him first.
Some of us may feel we have nothing to celebrate, we may have lost a loved one or don’t have anyone in our life, but rejoice is in your soul and you are here on earth breathing the air that he has provided you with.
We pray for those who have left us to be with our heavenly Father, they now know the true meaning of Easter and are celebrating it in the Heavens.
I am sure that those of us who may have given up something for Lent can hardly wait to get back what you have given up those 40 days.
Just be wise and don’t abuse it whatever it may be enjoy your Sunday with your Family and have Fun!
Fiesta is just around the corner, as I prepare for Royal appearances I also look forward to meeting wonderful people and enjoying the music of different bands and Mariachis, the Aroma of the different foods, some of the costumes, and Fiesta hats that people decorate. Not to mention the Parades, and Carnival. I am so proud to live in a city that is filled with excitement and a city that offers and shares the beauty of our Culture. Although some of us may say we are a beat of a different drum in reality we are all unique and the same in one form or another.
One thing I want to stress is Parents please look after your children and don’t lose sight of where they are.
To all of us adults please be responsible and stay out of trouble enjoy Fiesta! and remember to look after each other and if you can not drive home “Please don’t do it”.
I want you to celebrate everyday giving thanks to our Father for your freedom and another day here on Earth.
So this Easter and Fiesta Enjoy the cracking of the Cascarones, and all the Fiesta Festivities going on around you spend it with your loved ones and friends.
In closing I want to say Goodbye and Rejoice with the Lord to our Dear Friend Max Ortiz who has left to celebrate eternal life with our Father Jesus Christ.
Max I will miss you dearly, but will always look up to you and the loving man you were to your beautiful wife Lupe, and all those who came to know you. We were Blessed to have you in our lives and my tears of sadness will fill like the river and turn to joy everytime I look up into the sky and see your smile and saying “Take Your Time I have All Day”
“We Walk By Faith and not By Sight”
