Make it comfortable
How will you celebrate this holiday? What will make you feel “at home”? – emotionally, that is…we know that’s the only option physically. One bonus of a stay-at-home, virtual Easter celebration is the ability to make it what you want. Make it meaningful, but make it comfortable. If sitting at the dinner table and dressing up for the day is what helps you feel respect for the Easter story and appreciate precious traditions with your family, then do it. If eating dinner together on the couch in your cozies feels more like home this year, enjoy it. This Easter won’t feel normal – find ways to make it special and comforting, nonetheless. The sanctity of the holiday comes, after all, not from the setting we are in, but from the position of our hearts, the humility of our prayers, and the fixing of our minds on hope, redemption, and salvation.
