Happy Easter





“He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our sins; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”  Isaiah 53:5

This weekend is the time Christians celebrate the Risen Savior. If it was not for the sacrifice Jesus made, we would be dead to our sin, eternally. Jesus paid the price we could not pay, for the debt that we owed.
 

We have all sinned, since we have all done wrong things. But God made a way for us to be forgiven so we can have eternal life in Heaven. We must recognize our sinfulness and accept that Jesus paid the penalty for our sin when he died on the cross and rose again from the grave.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

It's a free gift..........Have a blessed Easter

Enjoy!

Rejoice!

Easter. A time of celebration. We don't usually have Easter at home, as there is always a family gathering. But I still enjoy setting my table in honor of this special day.

~"But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy
and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you."
Psalms 5:11 ~

The Silver belonged to my BFF who passed away 15 years ago.

Her family did not want any of these pieces, so they passed them on to me.

~"Glory in his holy name: let the hearts of these who seek the Lord rejoice!"
1 Chronicles 16:10~

Dishes with Scripture verses are so special..

Several years ago, when I found these at Ross, my daughter and I were on the hunt to find enough pieces to complete the table.

~"Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations,
'The Lord reigns!'" 1 Chronicles 16:31 ~



It was so much fun making the rosette napkins.


~Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say REJOICE. " Philippians 4:4 ~


~ "Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready" Revelation 19:7 ~


This weekend we will be celebrating the Risen Savior. The sacrifice HE made, paid the price for the debt we owed.

We are all sinners, since we have all done wrong things. But God made a way for us to be forgiven so we can have eternal life in Heaven. All we have to do is recognize our sinfulness and accept that Jesus paid the penalty for our sin when he died on the cross and rose again from the grave.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Have a blessed Easter!

A Little Bit of Paradise

Have you ever been to a place called Paradise?? I am so fortunate to live in a place of balmy days and enduring sunshine.

Many friends that visit from the north expect to see only sand, seashore, flamingos and palm trees.



Here is a little bit of My Florida..........






























I never tire of the beauty that surrounds me. There are certainly some places that fall short, but when we look for the good, we will almost always find some ray of sunshine.

The Baggage Handler


Confusion about baggage! Three people arrive at the airport and end up with the wrong bags. Businessman David, in a hurry to get to his important meeting, Gillian flying home to attend her nieces wedding, and Michael, seeking an athletic scholarship at the University. When they each discover they have the wrong bags, the story gets most interesting.

The Baggage Handler by David Rawlings shares how we all carry baggage in our lives. Not the suitcase kind, but the kind that weighs us down. The baggage handler guides each of the travelers though an exercise that brings to light just how much baggage they are carrying. And in the end, will they decide to let go of their baggage? It gives food for thought.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book, all opinions are my own.
