  • Without Easter

    The average American, when asked about Easter, thinks about eggs, candy, bunnies, and decorations. Although there is nothing wrong with such traditions, sometimes we may miss the main point of the celebration. Easter is far more important than we realize. Have you ever thought about what it would be like if Easter Sunday never happened?

    What is the true meaning of Easter? First of all, we must understand the true meaning of Easter. Easter is a celebration of Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross in order to provide a way of salvation through the forgiving of sin.

  • Jesus is Alive

    The Arc’ de Triomphe in Paris, is one of the most magnificent monuments in the world.  It is the originating center of many beautiful avenues, the most famous of the twelve being the Champs-Elysses. 

    The crucifixion and resurrection, a mighty spiritual arch of triumph, is the originating center of the Christian faith, from which every facet of our hope is extended.  Christianity seemed doomed that Jewish sabbath when the body of Jesus lay in a borrowed tomb.  But resurrection morning brought hope, light, joy and immortality to life.

  • A bitter taste

    Have you ever had a bitter taste in your mouth? Like when you are a kid and say a dirty word or sass your mom. The punishment was often getting soap in your mouth. That taste, you try everything you can think of to get it out of your mouth. It lingers on your tongue for a while; eventually it wears off but the memory of that awful taste remains.

    It’s too bad we don’t get a vile taste in our mouths when we spew poisonous babble, like gossip. It could save a lot of people from unnecessary hurt and heartache.

    Thought for the week: Someday everything will make perfect sense. So, for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.

    On Saturday, April 8, I did my first 5k walk sponsored by First Baptist Church Relay for Life team Living Strong. They had a good turnout. I ran three miles in 50 minutes and I paid for it on Sunday. My legs hurt like crazy. I need to get more walking in before next one comes up.
