I have fallen in love more than once.

In 1975, I fell in love with Paula Warvel. Married her the next year. In 1980, she gave birth to Luke and I fell right in love with him. In 1983, it was baby Marie.

I have fallen in love other times, too.

As a teenager, I fell in love with Jesus. The stories from the Gospels captured my heart. Jesus so clearly cared about the little ones and the least ones. He cared about underdogs. In high school, I was one of those.

I'm so lucky to have my own personal Zen master.

In spite of autism, in spite of mental disability, my daughter Marie has both a great heart and quirky wisdom. I quote her often because she deserves to be heard.

So not long ago, I was thinking about the season of Easter. And I asked her advice. She had some, and it was simple and clear. She said, "Let it rip!"

Alleluia, Christ is risen, let it rip! Easter happens. Joy comes along unexpectedly.
