What Easter Means to me.

Up from the Grave He arose!
With a mighty triumph over His Foes!
He arose a victor of the dark domain.
He arose a victor with the saints to reign!
He arose!
He Arose!
Hallelujah Christ Arose!

Beyond the statement on the cross...
"It is finished"...

Now that the task was complete
Victors made us all, did he...
He took away the power of the dark domain.
He gave em a whoopin'!

Now we are within that triumph
In Him...
In Him...
For if you abide in Him and He in You ,
ask what so ever you may, It will be done unto you.

Not my will, No longer MY life.
Bought with a price...a terrible price.
Chains and shackles removed.
Purchased from the slaver, bought.
Set free to owe such a great debt of love.
Because He loved me first, I love Him all the more.

We are adopted, brothers and sisters.
More than servants, joint heirs.

What Easter means to me

is to remember that beyond it "being finished"...

My life likewise risen out of the ashed, purchased.
No longer a slave.
I am a free woman.
My choice now is my own, as is the choice of my allegiance.

It is to my God
My impassioned lover of my soul.
That I now pledge allegiance too.

My Mothers maiden name was
Esterdosh... = Easterday.
The genealogy showed that they were grave diggers in the 1600's.
The "untouchables".

Through His acceptance of adopting me, he pursued me!
He wanted (wants/longs for) me.

I am His.

He has given me a new name,
I am known as His.

I love the book of Isaiah ..... The scripture......Isa 53:4-5 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
Isa 53:5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Our Peace was upon HIM...... How I needed peace in my life.... and when I met HIM......HE came with peace in HIS hands...

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"
