Where man sees but withered leaves,
God sees sweet flowers growing.
God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled,
and died, it was God saying to the world, 'I love you.'
A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice
for the good of others, including his enemies, and became
the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.
The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ came to do three things.
He came to have my past forgiven, you get a purpose for living
and a home in Heaven.
To a Christian, Easter Sunday means everything, when we celebrate
the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The symbolic language of the crucifixion is the death of
the old paradigm; resurrection is a leap into a whole new
way of thinking.
Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal, and new
Janine di Giovanni
I'm Jewish, so I don't know much about Easter eggs.
There would be no Christmas if there was no Easter.
Gordon B. Hinckley
But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust.
Happy Easter to you, my friend!
This days light shall have no end.
For Christ did rise
In the golden morn
And by His life are we reborn. (break here for single post)
Happy Easter to one and all!
The night is over, the sun is tall.
The day did break with a tiny beam
And flooded life with Light supreme.
Paul F. Kirtepeter
Holly Pond Hill: A Child's Book of Easter.
Easter so longed for is gone in a day.
Forget love - I'd rather fall in chocolate!!!
The stars shall fade away, the sun himself
Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years;
But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth,
Unhurt amid the war of elements,
The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.
It was inevitable that Jesus Christ should be crucified.
It was also inevitable that He should rise again.
H. R. L. Sheppard
'Christ the Lord is risen to-day,'
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
We ask the risen Jesus, who turns death into life, to change
hatred into love, vengeance into forgiveness, war into peace.
Pope Francis I
Easter Sunday prayer.
Love paid a price so hope could become a reality.
Easter was when Hope in person surprised the whole world
by coming forward from the future into the present.
N. T. Wright
Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven,
the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church.
'Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees
Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
