Easter - a promise fulfilled

Excerpts taken from "Just Thoughts of a Plain Country Woman", The Collinsville News, April 7, 1949
"But what is Easter but Christmas fulfilled,
The Babe grown to The Man,
The Promise become the Fulfillment?

For Christmas, we work frantically for weeks getting our gifts
ready;    (It is said that The Wise Men, reading their stars all night, started a year or so early toward Bethlehem in order to arrive on time with their gifts) so why shouldn't we observe a like period of meditation and preparation (not altogether on new clothes) for the greatest of all Christian miracles and celebration?"
