During this special season when Christians worldwide celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, we would like to share with you the following verse:
May you be blessed at EASTER with a faith that's ever strong,
A faith that never wavers whether things go right or wrong.
And, may you feel the perfect peace of Jesus' tender care,
And feel the sweet serenity of knowing He is there.
AN EASTER 'THANK YOU' PRAYER on this resurrection day ~ ~ ~
Lord, thank YOU for the gift of HOPE You gave us on Easter morning. Because of You, we know that no problem is too difficult and even death does not have power over us all.
Thank YOU for the gift of JOY You gave us when You were resurrected. Because of You, we know that no matter how challenging life may be, in the end, we will rejoice again.
Thank YOU for the gift of LOVE You gave us when you laid down your life. Because of You, we know that there is no sin too great as to separate us from You.
Thank YOU for the gift of LIFE You gave us when you left the tomb. Because of Easter we know this world is just the beginning, and we will spend forever in heaven with You.
We celebrate YOU, Jesus, with hearts full of praise and gratitude for who You are and all You've done for us!

"Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre." --Luke 24:1-2
"He is not here, but is risen: remember how He spake unto you when He was yet in Galilee,
Saying the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
And they remembered His words .... " --Luke 24:6-8
