Lisa of Easter

My sister and I have always had an affinity for the Easter holiday because our last name means “of Easter” in Italian.  Growing up in Tallahassee, Florida it was both a badge of honor and an annoyance to have a “weird” last name.  Knowing the translation was a way to make it more palatable to our fellow southerners.

I’ve celebrated Easter as a lukewarm Christian, a cynical atheist, and now as a evangelical Christian.  I’ve always felt connected to Easter, but as a believer it’s even much more meaningful.  Being “Lisa of Easter” is no longer just a quirky fact, but a reminder of God’s love and sacrifice for all of us.  Buona Pasqua!
