Have a Wonderful Easter


Easter ~ The Christian holiday that reminds us of what Jesus, as God in the flesh, did after dying a horrible death for the sins of all of us. He arose from the dead, as he said he was going to do, so that we'd be Free for ever more.

This is my favorite holiday. I am a sinner saved by God's grace. Each day is a gift, and I am looking forward to the day I meet Jesus, the Saviour of the whole world, face to face.

This is a joyous holiday, one filled with grace and truth. One filled with energy and Love, the love of God for His creation.

I want to wish everyone a wonderful Easter filled with the joy of living the lives we have been blessed with, and thankfulness to the One who made it all happen. His name is Jesus, and He is called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Twas Easter-Sunday.
The full-blossomed trees Filled all the air
with fragrance and with joy.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Let the resurrection joy
lift us from loneliness
and weakness
and despair
to strength
and beauty and happiness.

FlowerLady~ Thank you for sweet comments on our NC gentleman's farm in NC. Yes, things are very lush and green right now AND getting hot! I probably could use your green thumb up here about now. Looks like you always have a "Plan B", inside or out. I love all of your activities. Enjoy this lovely Easter day.

I'm glad I made it here to your lovely Easter post. He is risen indeed! I look forward to heaven, and being with Jesus, too. I am so thankful for the faith He's given me, and that I don't have to earn His love.
