Happy Easter From BlakeOnline!

April 13, 2009

Hi, everyone!

I hope you all have a wonderful and happy Easter Sunday. I wanted to take this time to address a matter that sometimes gets overlooked in the midst of all the eggs, bunnies, and chocolate. Missing from that bundle of Easter traditions is by far the most important Easter celebration of all.

The true reason we celebrate Easter at all is the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ, who came to Earth to suffer an excruciating death so that our sins are forgiven. It doesn’t seem fair that the One who cares the most should have had to take the punishment for something we’re all guilty of, though that’s the entire essence of the Easter holiday.

Jesus died to save you. Does the way each of us live our lives reflect our thankfulness to Him for doing that?

Everyone that repents for their sinful nature and accepts the forgiveness that Christ offers by inviting Him into their lives is eternally saved.

I don’t mean to be a burden, but as you enjoy your egg hunts, candy, and dressing up in your Sunday best, take some time to celebrate the true meaning of the Easter holiday, the rise of Christ from the dead.

Merry Christmas from BlakeOnline!

December 24, 2008

BlakeOnline wishes you a very merry Christmas!

As a reminder, the Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade airs tomorrow morning (Christmas morning!), at 10:00am Eastern time, and 9:00am central time on ABC! All of your favorite Disney characters, plus special celebrity appearances, are featured in the annual telecast of this Christmas favorite that has been enchanting families for a quarter of a century now, as the parade had its first broadcast 25 years ago. Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa will be hosting the parade from Walt Disney World in Florida, while Ryan Secrest will be hosting from Disneyland in California. And the big guy himself, Santa Claus, will also be capping off the parade after his trip around the globe.

Also, remember to check out, if you haven’t already done so, the review of the new Christmas special A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa, which was posted recently here on BlakeOnline.

May everyone have a very merry Christmas and I hope that you all travel safely (no road rage, please!), enjoy your family, sing a few Christmas carols, embrace the Christmas spirit, and, most importantly of all, don’t lose sight of the true reason for the season, the beautiful birth of Jesus Christ the King.
