Happy Easter!

Another "Christian Holiday" is upon us today! As with Christmas it is often commercialized and the real meaning is overtaken by Easter Bunnies, Easter Baskets, and Candy. TODAY is the day that the Angel rolled the stone away from the tomb and Jesus rose from the dead!

What does this mean to you? It is certainly not a fairytale story with bunnies hoping about ... it is about death. Christmas is about Hope, it is easy to get that meaning! Easter is the triumph over death, even death cannot stop God's plan!

You can have eternal life ... everyone can! If you are happy with life as it is .. that is fine but are you giving up on the possibility of eternal life?

Good Friday

Yesterday was Good Friday... for those who don't know what Good Friday really is... it is the day that Jesus crucified and died on the cross FOR OUR SINS. There are several theories as to why it is called Good Friday... the one that I like and believe is that God is good and no tragedy, not even death, can overwhelm God’s Providence, Love, and Grace. I do believe that, even in light of the events that happened in Murfreesboro yesterday on Good Friday. Yes it was scary and yes I did pray, but I am certain that had those tornadoes hit our house and we did not make it that I would have my place in heaven. Do you know that?
