BLESSED ASSURANCE for a wonderful HAPPY, HOLY EASTER


I want to wish each and every one a HOLY EASTER SUNDAY...........
I know you all love JESUS CHRIST as I do; heart and soul.

The things HE has done for me....the blessings HE has given to me are so many. I stand before HIM with tears in my eyes every time I think of all HE went through, just for YOU and ME. Of course, we can not even BEGIN to understand this kind of love, even though we love HIM so.

To know HE loves us is to NEVER have to be alone, through good times and bad times, to know HE is always there, beside us, just waiting to be asked into our hearts. I am so glad I have HIM with me. I've had times throughout this long life of mine that I could not have taken another step, another breath if it weren't for HIM.


HE LOVED AND DIED

When HE was being beaten and spat upon,

When HIS flesh was being torn by the whip

When HIS back was scourged,

Then HE saw me being baptized

And so HE permitted them to do so.


When the crown was crushed into HIS head

When HE tasted HIS own blood
When the thorns pierced HIS flesh,

Then HE saw me praying

And so HE killed them not.

When HIS cross was so heavy that HE fell

When HE carried wood on HIS torn flesh

When HE wished simply to move no more,

Then HE saw me in confession,

And so HE got up and walked on.

When HIS hands were being pierced

When HE hung from a cross
When HIS side was bleeding,

Then HE said, " I love YOU",

And so HE died.

A blessed and Happy Easter to all !

Good Morning BJ,
"HAPPY EASTER" and "HE IS RISEN" to you and yours. I really enjoyed your post today. It just gave me chills. CHRIST has done so many wonderful things for me and my Family as well and to HIM I am truly "THANKFUL". We all must remember what CHRIST went thru and did for each of us. I am like Kathleen Grace, I feel so blessed to have found such a wonderful group of Women who are Christians. "CONGRATULATION'S" to Adrienne for winning your lovely Gift Away. I know she will be very excited to receive it. Take care my friend and have a great Easter. May God Bless You and Yours.

What a beautiful post! This is my favorite day of the year... and the day that I miss having a church home the most...

Just that one day, Jesus did more for all of us than anyone ever could... Not to mention everything since then, including saving the lives of all my family members last May!
