I have made no secret of my faith here. So it will come as no surprise that today is a very special day for me. Easter is the centre of the Christian calendar. The pivot around which all else spins. Without it, there is no Christianity.
Today I have not been able to attend church. It is the first time for longer than I can remember that I have not celebrated Easter with friends in some declaratory way. Very commonly the Captain and I have been boating for Easter so have attended many different churches over the years. This year I am quiet and private in my devotions. And I am more than ok with that.
I hoping that Easter’s central message of death and salvation is being quietly mirrored in my body. I am hoping that my cancer ridden orb has taken all its cells with it and departed to the depths. I am hoping that new life is now busily growing and reproducing healthy cells as my body heals and restores itself.
Waking in my own bed on Easter morning for my first full day at home was very definitely a special moment. Happy Easter everyone x
