Happy Easter!


Praise the Lord, He is risen, just as He said! Sometimes I just get so excited and joyful over what Jesus did for me! I love my Savior so, so, SO much!
This Easter, as you walk through stores filled to overflowing with chocolate bunnies and plastic, candy-filled eggs, remember what Easter is REALLY about. 
I wrote this poem a couple weeks ago, after reading all the gospels, one after another, in my Bible reading for the year. I was feeling a little overwhelmed with how great His sacrifice and love for us was. So I captured my thoughts and wrote them down in verse. Hope you enjoy the following poem, celebrating how free we are in Christ:


What Easter is REALLY About
The crowds gather as He’s nailed to the cross,
But all He sees is how much they are lost.
On that cross He’s covered by my sin,
And Satan’s certain that he will win.
With one last sigh He bows His head to pray,
“Father please forgive them all that they say.”
Clouds roll in, and cover up the skies.
The whole creation trembles as He dies.
But three days later the stone is rolled away,
As promised, Jesus raises from the grave!
Praise and honor Lord I give to You,
Salvation is earned by nothing that I do.
Because Your Son took away my sin,
Your perfect heaven I can enter in.
So I will sing of what You’ve done for me,
Your precious Son died to make me free.
