Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone! He is risen! Christ the Lord has risen today, and He has saved us from our sins and lives on in heaven, waiting for us there and all our brothers and sisters in Christ! I hope your day is blessed and focused on why we celebrate- our Lord and Savior who has sent his only son to die for us and who has risen from the dead. We are saved by grace through faith and it's not by ourselves, it is the gift of God!

I wanted to share with you my favorite Easter video of all time. <3 I think this video just really hits the point of Easter on the head, with the help of several little children.

I hope you take the time to watch this. Also, last Easter I wrote a story about The Heart Healer. If you didn't get a chance to read it last year I invite you to read it this year: The Heart Healer

Only if you want, that is. :) 

God Bless and may your day be wonderful, bright, and happy! Also enjoy the ham, if you eat that sort of thing. I used to tease my Jewish-Christian friends that, "Praise God that He is risen, He saved us from our sins and abolished the law, so now we can eat ham!"
It was a joke they thought was funny. (They followed old testament law about not eating pork and things like that, so we used to tease each other about being "heathens" and stuff like that. It was great. ;D)

May the Lord bless you today and may we never forget what Easter is about- our wonderful Savior. <3

    1. Yummy pork! Haha, funny thing is we had steak instead of ham this time. ;) We're going to actually celebrate Easter another day because little sister R is still in the hospital, so we're waiting until she's out to actually celebrate it. After all, everyday we live out the Resurrection because we're saved!

      Happy Easter!
