Happy Resurrection Sunday!

He is Risen! Hallelujah!

This morning, during my personal Bible time, I read the account of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. My heart grieved at how the Lord Jesus was treated. My heart was amazed at “Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” 1 Peter 2:23-24

My heart was filled with wonder over Joseph, who boldly asked for the body of his Lord, and tenderly buried Him. My heart was joyful over Jesus’ victory over death!

He is Risen Indeed!

  1. Beautiful photo that captures the spirit of the Resurrection. A blessed Easter to all of you. I hope the little girls enjoyed their Easter baskets. Do they do an Easter egg hunt at your church?
    Thank you. The little girls didn’t have any baskets or that sort of thing as we focus on Jesus and His resurrection at home and at church.
    God bless.

  2. I also read these passages this morning. Since Friday I have been trying to imagine how Mary felt through all of this. It had to be almost unbearable for her.

  3. Happy Easter Blessings!

    Did you have an Easter service for the elderly at the elderly home? Did you bake the elderly, yummy easter eggs as I would think the elderly would love them.

    We made some chocolate eggs and cute bunnies for the elderly Neighbours who live in Ramsey Street. Everybody needs good neighbours.

    We had a great service yesterday, but the focus was on the Lord Jesus so we didn’t do any egg types of things.

  4. And we have that resurrection power daily! Thank you for that last statement….My heart was joyful…. We have the joy of the Lord to share with others!

  5. Happy Easter to you all!

    Interesting question posed by a gentleman in my Sunday School class: did any of The Twelve witness Christ’s crucifixion? In St. John 19:25-27, it mentions that there was a disciple standing next to Mary, Jesus’ other, Mary the wife of Cleophas and Mary Magdelene. It references this Disciple as “the one whom [Jesus] loved.” This leads me to believe it was John since he is the Disciple commonly referred to as the one Jesus loved, but given only this vague reference, I am not sure. Do any of ya’ll have any ideas?

    Hope you had a wonderful day filled with family and faith!


    Since John was there, I always assumed the others were there as well.

  6. We read the same passage. I also love the photo.
    I agree with Steve, I have always thought that all were there since John was.
    Have a beautiful week. My heart if full of joy and gratitute for what our Savior Jesus Christ has done for us.

  7. We had a wonderful Easter with a fantastic church service and then an afternoon and evening grilling out, eating and playing games with friends. The temperature was perfect and the yard is just bursting with new life, leaves, grass, flowers, birds… and the occasional insect. 🙂 I’m wondering if the picture you posted is of Mom’s dogwood tree. It was just getting ready to bud when I left. I was hoping then that it would bloom full and long to bring a smile to her many mornings as she opened the front curtains. Love you guys. He is RISEN!!
    Amen. It was Gigi’s dogwood. It was beautiful.

  8. Happy Resurrection Sunday! Beautiful day outside, perfect for focusing on Jesus being raised from the dead! It was a good service at church remembering that. The one song we didn’t sing that I wanted to, was “He Lives!”

    We had a quiet afternoon at home, and then went over to Mom’s sister’s home with family in the evening.

    God bless! Rebecca K.

  9. Thank you, Steve.

    It was an interesting question because I guess I just assumed that they were all there as well, but that is not supported by the scriptures other than the reference in John 19. Something tells me we will have an interesting lesson this Sunday because our teacher said he would try to find an answer. I think this will also be a good lesson for one or both of my children to research.

    Love you all and thank you again!


  10. It is always wonderful to celebrate the Resurrection. I kept thinking this year of the fact that we cannot even begin to imagine the cost of our sins on the cross. The exchange between the Father and the Son at that moment when redemption was completed is unimaginable and beyond my grasp. The gravity of the situation ending in grace that I do not deserve allows me to understand a love that we will only know through this act. A provision of restoration by a Holy God to us out of love. That is the source of the celebration, the source of our shouting proclamation that He did defeat death and is alive. It is the reason that should drive us to share this message (how do we contain a love like this to ourselves)? Beautiful Post Sarah and amazing picture of God’s beauty in nature.
    Amen and amen.

  11. Oh please, do a day in the life of each member! I would really like to see how everyone spends there day!

    You have been such a godly inspiration to me and my family!

    God bless!


  12. You were “amazed” and “filled with wonder”? It puzzles me that someone from a family who purports to be so religious would not have read this, or any part of the bible numerous times before. I am an atheist and am certainly very familiar with the passages quoted and alluded to. But then, they say that most atheists and agnostics are more religiously literate than people who are actually religious.

  13. Well said Mr Maxwell! I hope you and your family are staying safe during the storms that are hitting the Midwest.

    Blessings from Canada,

    Thank you. We are a bit outside of tornado alley. Concerned and praying for those who live in those areas though.
