Easter is the most significant season of the Christian church: a time of renewed hope and optimism, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus.

This is a season of new beginnings. Warmer weather, abundant sunshine and the freshness of spring.

In Bermuda, the Easter weekend is an opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends.

A time to embrace our unique culture and special traditions, flying kites, playing marbles and jacks, feasting on hot cross buns and fishcakes and simply enjoying the outdoors.

It is also a time to warmly remember those who are no longer with us and those who have recently lost loved ones.

This weekend, as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, let’s count our blessings and be thankful for each and every one.

Many will rise early on Easter morning to attend church and celebrate this wondrous occasion — to hear the message of renewal, faith, and compassion.

A message that is worthy of repeating throughout the rest of the year.

However you spend this Easter, I encourage you to celebrate with peace and love, remember those less fortunate and please be extra careful while driving and riding around Bermuda.

From my wife, Kristin, and our family to yours, I wish you peace, joy and a happy and safe Easter holiday.
