Hi guys! Happy Easter to each and everyone, Christians and non-Christians alike! Every time our family commemorates Easter, I always have a feeling of renewal and hope. I can relate Easter to our lives in general. Many times in our lives we feel like we have died emotionally, spiritually, and even economically. These are the moments when we feel like everything is not going right, that everything we have worked so hard for have been shattered to pieces. When these moments come, our whole being also crumbles with the feeling of hopelessness and sorrow. The feeling is so painful that we become numb because of it. But when the time comes that we are able to comfort ourselves and finally stand up from the deep fall we have been into, a feeling of renewal and living again begins to set off. When we learn to overcome our pains and heal our wounds, the darkness and feeling of sadness slowly lifts and we begin to see the light of hope again. Addiction is a painful and shattering path that breaks anyone who comes into it but hope is a strong tool that helps a person lift him/herself from that thorny path leading to a renewed and cleaner path. One dies in addiction but lives again in reformation. I wish you all a beautiful new life ahead!
