Happy Easter

"I serve a risen Savior he's in the world today!  He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today. He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way.  He lives, He lives, salvation to impart. You ask me how I know He lives He lives within my heart!" Hallelujah! This Easter Sunday is a celebratory day to remember that Jesus Christ took all of our sins upon himself to suffer and die on the cross on Good Friday when the daylight turned to darkness because of his suffering and death.  When Easter Sunday arrives and we can celebrate that he is no longer hanging on that cross nor lying wrapped in a tomb!  The stone was rolled away the tomb was empty. Christ is alive and interceding for us in Heaven.  We all have an emptiness and a yearning in our hearts and Jesus Christ is the only thing that can truly fill that aching spot.  If you have decided that you can no longer go on by yourself, if you are in need of a Savior and we all are here is the deal this is all that is required:  acknowledge that you have sinned and ask God to forgive you of your sins and wash you clean.  Ask Jesus Christ to enter your life so that you can be born again as a cleaned up new person.  Thank him for this wonderful gift and rejoice in the joy that this brings to your life.  And then tell someone that you have accepted Christ into your life that you are ready to start anew.  The next step for you would be to find a Bible and begin to read God's word.  Start with the Book of John it is a very clear book of what your new journey of walking with Christ will be like.  Then find a Bible believing church where you can grow in your knowledge of Christ and be supported and loved by others who believe in him.  Pretty easy for a completely life changing experience.  If you would like please leave a comment here for me I would love to be able to share in the joy with you as you begin your new life. Happy Easter!  Now I need to go grab a cup of decaf. coffee, perhaps a snack of ham and deviled eggs which will make my palate extremely happy and will get me away from the snoring of my very hard working husband who is finally getting a chance to relax and snooze on the couch!
 And I tell you this daughter of mine makes a Chocolate Chip Cheese Cake and Carrot Cake that is oh so divine and I can hear them calling to me...come to the kitchen, grab your cup of coffee and then eat them! Yum lucky me!
