A Blessed Easter to All


HE HAS RISEN AND IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!

Wishing everyone reading this a most blessed and abundant Easter.



Christ rising from the dead after horrific suffering and being in a tomb for three days gives hope to our world.

He is the light of the world!


I was blessed to attend an Easter Vigil at church last night that is always inspirational and very meaningful.

Seeing more than 100 people holding lighted candles in a darkened church and a fire crackling on the altar was quite breathtaking.  




It symbolized that Christ is, indeed, the light of the world.

There was music, singing, a confirmation, and meaningful prayers.

The service evoked feelings of deep gratitude and immense peace.

Of all the gifts my parents and grandparents ever gave me, and there were many, the gift of faith is the greatest of all.


I imagine it will remain that way until I take my last breath on earth.




May each of you be filled with peace and joy this glorious Easter day!



A happy and love-filled  Easter to all!

Happy Easter Susan! Those pictures of people with candles are amazing...
The greatest gift they gave me is their love I carry on through ages and will for many years ahead.

I, with you Susan, am so grateful to my parents for raising me in the faith. When my world is trembling there is always my God, loving me, caring about me, and filling me with a sense of His blessed presence. I love Him with all my heart. Blessed Easter to all.

Hello from Spain: Happy Easter. I really liked your photos. I also celebrate the resurrection of Christ today. The best gift my parents gave me were: life, a great education and respect for others. Keep in touch
