He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
Come and see the place where he lay.
Matthew 28:6 NIV
Because He lives, we have hope beyond this life. And that is His greatest gift of all...the promise of eternal life to all who trust in Him.
Because He lives I can face tomorrow. I do not need to be afraid. He knows what lies ahead for me...for you. My future will be OK...maybe not always easy, but in His hands.
Today is April 4th...a day that brings many memories. Two years ago today our granddaughter was born...what joy to meet her and hold her. Two years ago today our granddaughter also passed away...what sadness and sorrow we felt. She is not here for her birthday celebration...or for our Easter egg hunt...but she is safe in the arms of Jesus. We know there is hope beyond the grave...and look forward to meeting her again one day.
Because He lives...life is worth the living!
Because He lives...I celebrate Easter.
