Easter Blessings to you and your families!

Good Friday….Because He loves us…

Jesus died for you

On my worst days, I cannot even begin to comprehend what Jesus went through for me.  Now, that’s sacrificial love in action.  How much does Jesus love you?  “This much!” as he stretched his arms out wide so they could be nailed to the cross.  Thank you, Jesus, for loving us unconditionally!

So, Jesus died for us… and our children, and grandchildren, and so on.   What are you willing to do for him?  Who will you share his message with  so they too can get to know this wonderful savior as their personal Lord and Savior?  It’s out of your comfort zone, you say?   You will not be alone!!   He will be with us every step of the way!

Thank you, dear Lord, for loving us as your brothers and sisters in Christ!
