Happy Easter!

Just wanted to hop in and wish you lovelies a Happy Easter! Easter is a day full of fellowship and true joy shared with one another! We have joy and everlasting hope as believers, knowing that our Savior lives, and will always be there for us. Today our Savior rose from the dead, pushed away the rock, and came out of his tomb. He suffered the cruel beatings, mocking voices, thorn of crown on his head, nails in his hands and feet, and the ultimate pain of death. All because of his love for his children, he laid down his life so that we could have eternal life with Him. 1 John 4:9-11 states, "In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another." I cannot fathom the amount of pain Jesus suffered on the cross that day. A King should be praised and worshipped, instead our King took the place of a servant to show his love for his Father and children. Isaiah 53:5 states, "But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed." I praise God that he sent his son. His son who he so cherished...yet loved his children more. Blessed are we who serves a Savior who saves, a Savior who loves, and a Savior who cares.

  1. It's so easy to forget when we are caught up in our everyday lives of truly how much Christ suffered on the cross for our sins. I think that Easter is such a wonderful time for us to stop and think about it, and to not forget about it as we go on with the rest of our lives. It's something we should remember and think about more often! <3
