Easter Blessings....

I just wanted to take a moment and say Happy Easter everyone!   I'm posting a photo that I took in Texas as we were traveling through last May.   It was a HUGE cross on the side of the road, and we were on the interstate and I looked over and knew I had to have a photo.  So this is not professionally taken.  It's a snapshot as we were driving.  But it makes me think.

Every time I look at it, I think of God and how He sent His Son, Jesus to the cross for us.  

I, as a mother, can't imagine what it would be like to send my son to die on a cross for everyone else.   I grasp at understanding this love and selflessness sometimes. 

But as He promised, there was a resurrection, and I know in my heart that HE will come again.  I thank GOD every day that He loved me that much.  

I believe the true message for us all in life is to love one another.  Yes, we'll make mistakes, I'll be the first to admit I'm nothing close to perfect.  I pray daily for forgiveness,  but because of LOVE we can be forgiven Thank You God and Jesus. 

Loving you all and praying for you.  Not just those immediately around me, but my family and friends on FaceBook that are near, and all over the world. 

John 3:16   For GOD so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 
Holy Bible, KJV
