Celebrating Easter

It wasn't our typical Easter......But none the less.....Easter has come and today, we celebrate a risen Savior!

Hallelujah !!!!!  



Good Friday.....    Isaiah 53: 5

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities: the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed"

Sat morning......    We attended a funeral for a classmate/friend.   Such a hard thing to do, however.....we all know that our time here on earth is short!   It is truly a humbling thought to think that our lives here on earth are nothing but a mere second of God's time.

What matters is that during our short life here....we let our desires be that of pleasing God.....of serving God!

Sunday Morning......Easter morning.

No sunshine.....only RAIN!    My words to Sam were:  "I suppose that it has to rain somewhere on Easter morning!"

In spite of the rain and the disappointed faces of the little children, as the egg hunts were moved indoors......It was WONDERFUL  to Celebrate the resurrection of  Jesus Christ.

THE TOMB IS EMPTY!!!

Speaking of the rain.....We also had lots of thunder!  A thunderstorm of sort.

Easter Sunday.....what a perfect time to look at the storm and relate it to the importance of Easter Sunday!

Not only did Jesus Christ....die on the cross for my sins and your sins......but, HE died on the cross for you and me.   HE loves us.....He takes care of us.  

Are you going through a storm?   Rest assured that our Savior......He knows exactly where you are.  Just like the pain that Jesus endured while hanging on the cross.....we too have pain and we suffer many trials.   Jesus knows our pain!!

There are times when the Storms of Life can really shake our world........what to do??   Trust in God!  Jesus paid the price on that old wooden cross.....and today, we have the VICTORY!

The story must be told in full.   Yes, Jesus died on the cross......However....... HE WAS RESURRECTED!     

HE LIVES!!   

In spite of the rain,  the loss of a friend, NO Easter Bunny cake, and the changes in plans....Our Easter was Beautiful.

Changes are not all bad,they tend to force us to focus on what really matters.Jesus is alive and so we too can have eternal life.Ok,I'm preaching to myself here.

Sorry that a funeral was part of your weekend. That's never easy. Also hate that it rained, but sounds like you all managed just fine. After the rain all is washed clean, just as our savior's blood cleansed us.

Hi Shug~

So sorry for your loss, Shug. It's so hard to say good-bye to good friends, but so reassuring to know that it's not the end, and they they are in the arms of the Savior.

Beautiful Post! I am forever thankful to Heavenly Father for the sweet gift of His Son, and for His Son's sweet gift to us!

Many blessings to you sweet friend!

Hugs,
Barb
