Good morning Friends ~ Here we are into the month where love is celebrated, February. I hope you are enjoying it so far. I’ve read that there are 6 more weeks of winter to be had, and then ‘spring’.
More on living life here at Plum Cottage to come later. This morning I’ll be working outside again, enjoying the beautiful weather we are having.
Today I have a book review.
‘The Women of Easter’ by Liz Curtis Higgs
"Encounter the Savior with Mary of Bethany, Mary of Nazareth, and Mary Magdalene".
As winter wanes, and February begins, hope is in our hearts as spring will soon be here. With spring, comes the celebration of Easter. For believers in Jesus, it is a time to celebrate His life, His death and His resurrection. It is a time of renewal, rebirth.
As God Himself, come in the flesh, Jesus gave his physical life willingly so that we may live life, fully now, and have eternal life as well, and this, because of His great love for us.
In this book, we read about three different women, all named Mary, all loved Jesus. They all knew He was their promised Savior and Messiah. They each had a personal relationship with Jesus. They saw and heard about His miracles, they witnessed His death, and then were with Him after He resurrected from physical death into life.
From the book:
"What we must cling to is the Lord's immeasurable and unconditonal love. He knows our needs, and He meets them. He sees our hurts and He heals them. He understand our fears and He overcomes them."
"Wherever He leads, follow Jesus. Whatever pain you are enduring, keep your eyes on Jesus. Even when hope seems gone, stay close to Jesus."
In this book you will read how each of these women interacted with Jesus. Your heart will be encouraged to draw closer to Jesus in your own daily life, whatever your circumstances.
This was a very uplifting read and I highly recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book for reviewing purposes, from Blogging for Books.
