Easter Celebrations

"For to this end Christ died 
and rose and lived again, 
that He might be Lord of
 both the dead and the living"

Since September 22nd of 2010,
 the day that my Mom went to Heaven,
my thoughts, especially on holidays, 
are about her.

On this sacred holiday, 
the day that Jesus conquered death
 and rose from His grave,
 I have thought about 
what that celebration 
must be like in Heaven.
It must be Glorious!
She is there!!!
What is she seeing, doing, experiencing?
It is so beyond my comprehension,
but, I do like to try and imagine it all.

I want to take this day to be
for God's Amazing Gift.
He gave us His Son to live and die for 
each one of us.

Thank you Father.
Thank you Jesus.

"Christ never sinned but 
God put our sin on Him.
Then we are made right with God
because of what Christ 
has done for us."
Colossians 2:13
Just accept and believe...

Dear Joyce,
I cannot imagine what life is like without your mama. It must be very difficult. You are so right...our faith is what we have to CLING to! Today is such a loving reminder that Jesus conquered death! For those in Christ....we don't have to face it. That means your sweet precious mother. :) Thinking of you.

Beautiful post dear Joyce!!! I am so glad we have this hope!! Thank you for the wonderful reminders of God's love for all of us. His amazing gift!!

Our granddaughter Zoe was asking all sorts of questions about heaven the other day. It was such a fun conversation. I think kids probably have a better understanding about what goes on there then we do!! :)
