Ali Times / April 14, 2006 Page 12Important things in life take time, effortBy Chaplain (Capt.) Carl Phillips407th Air Expeditionary Group chaplain Easter is almost upon us. Easter happens tobe the most important observance of the Christianfaith. It is the day we celebrate the resurrection ofJesus from the dead. Though you need to be a mathematician to cal-culate what day Easter will fall on each year, it is aholiday preceded by a 40-day period of preparation.With much fanfare and a variety of traditions, theday is a very holy day to Christians. People have said, “Why do we need to go to somuch work for a holiday?” They would prefer tohave a day that they acknowledge as important butwithout all of hassle of preparation and fanfare. I thought about what they have said and con-cluded that everything important takes time and ef-fort. It was easy for President George Bush to say, “Iwill not yield. I will not rest. I will not relent inwaging this struggle for freedom and security for theAmerican people.” We all shook our heads in agreement but afterthree years many wonder why we even bothered.
