We wish you all a wonderful and peaceful EASTER filled with love and understanding of the reason why we celebrate EASTER. Easter is God's gift of love that gives us hope of what is yet to come for those who love God and live according to His promises.
Please take a moment and read this simple poem.
We hold so close to our hearts
The cross where Jesus died
But so much more than the blood-stained cross
Is that Jesus came back to life.
The stone's been rolled away
The tomb lays open and bare
They looked for Him, and then the angel said
That He is no longer here.
Oh what joy they must have felt
To see Him just once more
To eat with Him, to drink with Him
To receive Him back as Lord.
So much did He accomplish
Through His death upon the cross
And in His rising from the dead
He reconciled us back to God.
Nothing else could bridge the gap
That sin had wrenched apart
Now we can freely go to God
And receive Christ in our hearts.
