Today is Easter… a day celebrating the greatest act of kindness EVER.
Today is also April Fool’s day.
I have no idea what the history of playing tricks on people is all about. It seems rather mean spirited. Today I’d like to follow the other tradition, the greatest kindness ever. Today I’d like to see people not perform acts of trickery, but perform acts of kindness.
I read once about a person who bought lottery tickets and wrote a nice note and put them on car windows. Can you imagine getting one of those instead of a pretend ticket on April fools day? I think that is what Jesus would do to celebrate this “holiday.”
So today I propose spreading joy on this beautiful spring day. Today I propose celebrating kindness with kindness as you remember the greatest kindness.
