What does it mean to have fulfillment? Can we somehow sense when we are fulfilled? If we consider spiritual fulfillment are we ever fulfilled? Perhaps only in heaven we are truly fulfilled, receiving our well-deserved rewards as good and faithful servants of the Lord. Let's consider our earthly rewards which pale in comparison to heavenly mansions, and workplaces. On earth, we can seem to be fulfilled at our places of employment or training or homes but we sense that something is missing--what is more of the spiritual dimension! Our occupations can be troublesome and tiresome but our visions of heaven and after-life blessings can be enough to encourage us in our daily lives and, perhaps, fulfill ourselves. Let's try to develop all our abilities, skills, talents, spiritual gifts, friendships, souls, spirits, minds and bodies to find at least some fleeting fulfillment here and now! And let's reward ourselves now for our spiritual accomplishments at least. Finally, let's acknowledge the power and importance of Easter this year as we assess ourselves and our capacities and thank our Lord Jesus for plans that have been fulfilled and experiences that have been rewarding! And find the true meaning of this Easter to be more than just some fulfillment--it's a celebration for increased quality of life of us all and a recognition of the powerful truth of the risen Christ who dwells within our hearts and in the holy heart of Heaven! Happy Easter to one and all!

Good message, although I don't agree with this sentence (or perhaps don't understand it): 'And let's reward ourselves now for our spiritual accomplishments at least. '
But I think it would be better if it was broken up a bit, expanded with some illustrations or just lightened slightly. As it is, it's a bit densely packed with gems!

Perhaps a bit too much fulfillment here; it shows up in every sentence. Your writing will sparkle more if you come up with alternative words. Some nice encouragement, and a Happy Easter to you, too!
