Fryewriter's Stories In Lifes Moments


"The Blue Bunny"

There are some things in life you just can't explain. Maybe you're not supposed to… because if you do, it takes away the mystery and the miracle of the moment.

One of those moments came to me in the form of a blue Easter Bunny. I had bought my son one of those little talking bunnies one Easter, the ones that when you squeeze the tummy, they say something silly. Well, this one exclaimed gleefully," Some BUNNY loves you!" followed by little bunny giggles. That poor blue bunny was literally squeezed a thousand times and those words could no longer be squeezed out of him. We tried, you could press that tummy all day long from every angle and those words were not going to come forth.

I had been struggling with depression and some personal issues for some time and the darkness of those feelings was getting a little overwhelming. I wrestled with my faith too and wondered why God couldn't just change things or make them simply go away. One day while cleaning my son's room, I simply threw my hands up to heaven and shouted, "Are you really there, God? Do you even care?"

I had no more than thrown those words to God when out of the corner of the room, words were thrown right back at me, "SOME BUNNY LOVES YOU!"  No one was near that bunny to squeeze his tummy to illicit those words. No one was there except God of course.
I could only laugh at the sense of humor from a God that would use a silly little bunny to show me that He loves me and is there to give me strength through the tough times. Some of His ways are subtle, so subtle if you're not paying attention you might miss them and others…well, others can take the shape of blue bunnies.

Happy Easter!
