The most important day to me

Today is the most important day of the year for me. I am a follower of Jesus, and nothing is more important to me than when he rose from the dead, with a promise that death will not be the end for us, either. God gave his only son, so that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16.

The wonderful writing blog, Novel Journey, had a fascinating and inspiring guest post by Athol Dickinson last week, How to Write a Masterpiece. It starts with these intriguing questions:

Do miracles survive after they have been scientifically explained?
Can intuition still guide our choices after we understand the subconscious factors at work?
Or do rational explanations for such things mean they never really existed in the first place?

It's interesting to see how he ties all these questions back to writing and the creative process, with some surprising references to Einstein and Michaelangelo. I highly recommend this post, even if you aren't a Christian. It's not preachy.

What is the most important day of the year for you?  I'd love to hear.


  1. Easter is the most important day of the year to me, as well. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Easter!

  2. Happy Easter, Margo. I don't have a favourite day of the year although New Year's Eve/Day usually inspires some navel gazing introspection so maybe one of those.
    - Sophia.

  3. Have a happy and joyful Easter, Margo Berendsen and family!!

    I'm so vain so my most important day for me is my birthday! LOL!! Take care

  4. Easter, definitely. It's the whole basis for Christianity. Have a wonderful and happy Easter!

  5. Hi, Margo.
    Thank you for posting this. It is the most important day, isn't it? If we want to be better, to be able to start over; if we hope toward a day when everything bad is washed away - where there is no more pain or suffering or death, then it all begins with this day.
    Thanks for the reminder.
    Happy Easter.


  6. Have a wonderful Easter, Margo :) I think many days in the spring are extremely important because they signify rebirths and new beginnings. I love the sentiment of renewal that comes with Easter.

  7. Happy Easter, Margo. Easter is an important day but I'd have to say the day Jesus was born is equally important. Every Easter and Christmas is a time to begin anew.

  8. Hi, Margo. This is late (I'm abroad at the moment), but I just wanted to stop by and wish you a happy Easter :)

  9. Happy Easter Margo.
    The most important day of the year to me is none of the National or International Holidays. It's my birthday, because it reminds me how many years I've been given to live, because my parents met and gave birth to me.
    Thanks for suggesting that post. I'm on my way to check it out.

  10. I teach 4th/5th grade Sunday School (we're Lutheran) and the gospels are my favorite to teach - this has been a wonderful Lenten season. Thanks for the reminder of John's lesson and for the uplifting post.
