Good Friday

I'm going to leave you with some verses today that I hope will help you to celebrate the real meaning of Easter. I know it's fun to do the egg hunts, and candy or other goodies, but please remember the REAL reason we celebrate Easter.
This is my favorite holiday. I can't help but become very emotional at what my savior did for me. To stop and think about him hanging on a cross that was meant for me. I'm the one that deserves it, he didn't. It's just utterly humbling to me. I hope this Easter you can focus on what he really did for you. If you've never entered into a relationship w/ Jesus but want too, leave a comment so I can pray for you and try to give you any encouragement I can.

Matthew 27:50-53 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

Matthew 28:1-10 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."
So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me."


1 Peter 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead..

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend.

The older I get the more I grasp the reality of this holiday...I also can't help but tear up and think how underserving I am of His grace and his gift...I am thankful though that He has given it so freely and through receiving His gift of salvation and contining to grow in our walk with Christ we can continue to shed light on how remarkable what He did for us really was!!!!

We Serve a Wonderful RISEN Savior!!

Happy Easter!!
