The Easter Lillies have almost finished blooming. If you are at all like me, the chocolate bunnies were finished off a week ago! It seems like Easter is over.

And yet the gospels keep telling us that Jesus comes to his disciples repeatedly.

The first lesson tells us that the disciples keep telling everyone they meet about Jesus. The second lesson reminds us that Jesus is still alive in our lives even 2000 years later.

The fact is Easter is not over. Easter is never over!

When Christ rose on that Sunday, he rose for all time. He did not just live for another ten or twenty years. Easter is an eternal festival. Christ rose from the dead and he still lives with us. As much as I love the Easter flowers and the candy, it is much better for all of us that while they go quickly, Christ is still with us.
