Easter is a fun time for children as they hunt eggs and receive gifts in their Easter Baskets. Spring time, flowers and fun are all in order this time of the year!
The days prior to the original Easter was NOT a fun day for Jesus.
Jesus suffered and died for us, but Glad Easter Morning, Jesus arose from the dead and He lives for ever more. Not only is he alive, but after 40 days he was escorted by Angels back to heaven leaving us with a promise that he would return some day to receive us unto himself. He did not leave us comfortless. He sent His Holy Spirit to be our helper. When we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we can know that He is IN us and will be with us always! He says, I will never leave you nor forsake you.
So let this Easter be a Fun day! Let it be a Glorious Day! Let it be a day of Hope! It is Resurrection Sunday!!
