Some thoughts regarding Easter ...


The greatest man in history, named Jesus.
Had no servants, yet they called Him Master.
Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.
Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.
He had no army, yet kings feared Him.
He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world.
He committed no crime.
Yet they crucified Him.
He was buried in a tomb, yet HE lives today.
Remember who Easter is about...


Easter Reflections

With OUR EYES we see 
The beauty of Easter
As the earth awakens once more. 

With OUR EARS we hear
The birds sing sweetly
To tell us spring again is here.

With OUR HANDS we pick 
The golden daffodils 
And the fragrant hyacinths. 

But only with OUR HEARTS 
Can we feel the MIRACLE of GOD'S LOVE
Which redeems all men. 

And only with OUR SOUL
Can we make our 'pilgrimage to God' 
And inherit His Easter
