The blessed sanctity of this Easter Sunday
Reaches out of Nazareth toward the final state,
Of our beloved Jesus nailed to a wooden cross
Decreed to death by Pontius Pilate
Our thoughts mellow with love and praise
Of the miracle impacting divine destiny’s instead,
When three days after Jesus’ crucifixion
He rose gallantly from the dead.
Jesus’ Resurrection became the root of Christian lore
Spreading to gentle folk around the earth,
Its mystery capturing hearts in spiritual need
Savoring the spirituality of Jesus’ rebirth.
A new day marked religious freedom by choice
As billions of folks raise skyward their eyes,
Toward the heavens where God dwells
The Father of the son heinously crucified.
As we say our prayers this memorable day
We remember John 3:16 with heartfelt divinity;
“For God so loved the world, that
He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish,
but have everlasting life.”

|He's alive, He's alive, He's alive and I'm forgiven, Heaven's gates are open wide! From "He's Alive," sung by Dolly Parton. The true meaning of the Season: He did this for me, for you, so we wouldn't suffer the same. Thank you, Jesus, and thank YOU, Jeanette, for penning this powerhouse thought provoker!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
