To everyone that has to this day, liked, commented, looked at, corresponded, even disagreed with, besides expressing my gratitude, I want to say something to you that means a lot to me.
Now don’t get me wrong – I’m fully aware that, in society at large, some may accept what I will say and even return it; some may get upset; some annoyed and for some, it will mean very little or nothing at all.
The greeting is, of course, related to a very special date in the Christian calendar. And not everyone agrees with that. Indeed people may have a completely different perspective.
And that’s entirely fair.
But I would like to take you behind the phrase to see the underlying motive upon which it rests.
In a world of the ‘agenda’, where we find people: taking offence where previously there would have been none; or posessing differing ideologies that sometimes lead to the most extreme and violent consequences; or being pressured to compromise their deeply-held faith and appease, even lie, to those that disagree with them in order to comply with the law, such a thought would tread very thin ice.
But blessings can come in all sorts of disguises and they will all have one thing in common: they will all, without exception, think the very best of and send very best wishes to those whom they are given to.
So I won’t insult you because, without being patronizing, you are intelligent, loving, caring, considerate, altruistic, benevolent and selfless enough to read behind, and understand, what I am about to say next:
A Happy Easter to you all!
