Resurrection

As I may be away from the keyboard for a few days I want to give you these thoughts:

God took a part of Himself, was born of a woman and lived as a man. He experienced everything we experience so that we might never say to God, "You don’t understand."
He died a horrid death and, on the third day, was raised from the dead. Many witnesses saw Him those forty days before He ascended into heaven where He will remain until the day He returns.
He did not leave us comfortless as He sent His Spirit to guide and comfort us.
The most wonderful day of the year, in my estimation, is Easter. A day which gives us hope.
A blessed resurrection day to all. gail

  1. Amen!  Couldn’t have said it better myself.  Though life has it’s ups and downs, he is always there to guide us and watch over us.  And I know He understands and everything will be ok.  I trust you have a nice relaxing holiday.  It’s gettting cold here again!  Back to sweater tomorrow and Friday and the weekend.  Take care. 

  2. Hi Gail, thanks for all the prayers.  I made it through my meeting with my dissertation chairman and he is reviewing the first two chapters now.  I loved your previous entry………so so true.  I too think that there is a direct correlation between the eroding of the moral fiber in our society, and the ‘dress code’.  Indeed a blog for another day!  Have a blessed Resurrection Day!

    Great thoughts about obedience Gail. I hadn’t looked at it in that way before.
     
    It can be so hard to deny the pleasures of the flesh, but they are only temporary anyway.
     
    The way of God is for evermore…
     
    Love ya,

  10. Not only did Jesus die for us, but in some mysterious way, when He died, we died, when He was resurrected, we were resurrected too.
     
    Col. 3: 1-4 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. 
     
    On Easter, the Christian can celebrate two resurrections; their own personal resurrection and the resurrection of Jesus who is our Love and Life Giver. 

  11. G – Hair came out good.  I was going to have Charlie take my picture tonight but he is going to an Arena Football game with his friend – Albany Conquests.  Guess I can wait till morning.  I’ll post them then.  I like the light red color.  Best of all — no blowdrying.

  13. Happy Easter!  We are having a COLD one here, just like you are too, I think.  It’s just amazing that it’s 38 degrees right now!

  14. Here is to one man who rebelled against the priest ridden money changers of his day to bring us one step closer to God!
     
    Love,
