Happy Day After Easter
Hope your Easter was meaningful,
hope filled, full of love, joy, and peace,
loved ones and great food and goodies!
Our's was all of that! It was wonderful to have our two
adult children and our two adult children to be, with us
for the Easter Service this morning and for dinner after-
wards and until late afternoon, when they went to visit
with their new families to be. It was a good day from
beginning to end!
Hubby and I wound up taking a late afternoon nap
from 5-7:30, and then stayed up very late watching
the latter part of the Passion of Christ.
It is such a poignant portrayal of what our Lord went
through for us...........although I have seen it several times
now, it is always soooo hard to watch. It is just so amazing
how blood thirsty, evil and brutal the men were who
Just inconcievable to me really!
At times, I just wished I could take those whips and
thrash them a few times so they would get a taste of
what they were doing to Him, and that maybe it would
make them stop!!
I can not even begin to imagine how his Mother and
friends must have felt to have to watch it all for real!
It has to be like watching a nightmare you can't
wake up from!
That is what it seems to me when they just keep beating
him and beating him, I have to admit I have to leave the
room some of the time, for my heart can hardly stand it.
Every time I watch it I can't help pondering it all for
days.............but one thing I can say for sure is I am so
thankful and grateful that the story did not end at
He went thru all the agony, torture and horribleness
of the crucifixion and dying, Only to be raised
from the dead unto a new life with His Heavenly Father,
also giving those that believe in His name and in what
He did on that cross..... salvation from our sin nature,
a new life here and now, and eternity in heaven
with Him when we leave this planet.
Doesn't get any better than that!!
Who doesn't want to have the power to over
come bad habits and thoughts?
Who doesn't want a better life?
Who doesn't want a second chance at life?
Who doesn't want to know their purpose
Who doesn't want to know where they are
going when they die??
Well, Jesus gives us the answers to all those
questions and more.
These are just the late night ponderance
of a woman who can't sleep, because she
can't quit thinking about the love, sacrifice,
and forgiveness that He poured out for me
and for you!!
What A Savior!!
Jesus paid it all............
All to HimI owe
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow!
Thanks for dropping by and for
reading the tender ramblings
of my heart!
Love hearing from you!!
May You Ponder His Great Love,
Love, and Hugs,
