If Easter says anything to us today, it says this: You can
put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there. You can nail
it to a cross, wrap it in winding sheets and shut it up in
a tomb, but it will rise!
Clarence W. Hall
Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially
spiritual and timeless.
Charles M. Crowe
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!
Bill and Gloria Gaither
Because He Lives, winner of the GMA Dover
Awards Song of the Year, 1974.
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and
then doesn't hurt!
Lucy Van Pelt
In Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz.
It is the hour to rend thy chains,
The blossom time of souls.
Katherine Lee Bates
Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people
and hallelujah is our song.
Pope John Paul II
The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes
us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and
in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.
Basil C. Hume
The story of Easter is the story of God's wonderful window
of divine surprise.
Let every man and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch
the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not
merely, 'Christ is risen,' but 'I shall rise.'
Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness
and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.
Floyd W. Tomkins
I think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes singing,
'At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be ringing!'
Edna Dean Proctor
Christianity begins where religion ends - with the resurrection.
For I remember it is Easter morn,
And life and love and peace are all new born.
Alice Freeman Palmer
O the Easter bells are gladly ringing,
Let the whole world join the happy lay,
Let the hills and vales break forth in singing,
Christ, the Lord of Life, is ris'n today.
On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to
The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and
the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.
There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good
friend with CHOCOLATE.
Easter tells us that life is to be interpreted not simply
in terms of things but in terms of ideals.
Charles M. Crowe
Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.
I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in
me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whoever liveth
and believeth in me shall never die.
Bible, John 11. 25.
