My spring flowers, bushes, and fruit trees are in bloom with these colors! It's so uplifting to see them come to life after a barren, colorless winter! My card uses Graphic45 paper and unknown ribbon and flowers from my stash.
Today I'm celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many people are focusing on bunnies, chicks, Easter eggs, and family dinners. My view of eggs and chicks are that they represent new life and the new life we receive by placing our faith in Jesus Christ, making Him the Lord of our life. In the Old Testament of the Bible, something had to die to take the punishment for one's sin, a sheep, goat, or cow. When Christ, God in flesh like us, came to earth as the sinless Savior, his plan was to die in our place as the perfect, once-for-all sacrifice. What's more amazing was that He didn't remain dead, but rose again after three days to show us that as believers in His death, we, too, can have new life both on earth and after death in heaven with Him. I hope and pray that you have received the gift of new life by believing in Christ's death on the cross for you. I also hope you've found that close relationship with Him, letting Him direct your life through His Word and His Spirit. If you haven't yet, I hope you'll check out this information for a better understanding.
May God bless and keep you as you celebrate Easter!
