Egg Hunt

Sunshine, eggs, smiles, baskets, fun, resurrection story . . .

Saturday, April 19, 2014

I was composing a letter for the month of April and was ready to put the finishing touches on it.  Suddenly I was compelled to hit the delete key . . . and I did!  It was gone.  Panic set in as I wondered why I hit that delete key.  I prayed  in desperation,  as the deadline was today.  Praying I found the answer:  too often we try to fill the space on the document with words and end up with nothing more than filler.  So I shortened it up to keep it simple.

Resurrection Sunday - Easter is a celebration of God’s unprecedented love for YOU.  A love demonstrated through Jesus, God’s Son, paying the ultimate price so that we might find forgiveness of sin.  Jesus gave His life so that YOU might have life!  A gift filled with hope, joy and eternal blessing, all by the grace of God.

Are you celebrating?

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
John 3: 16

Let the celebration begin!    He is risen!
