Happy Easter!

“Christ has risen.”

“He is risen indeed!”

So goes the saying that has been heard on Easter for centuries.   I personally look forward to hearing this each year, sort of like being able to greet the birthday person with “Happy Birthday!”  A Celebration!

The darkness of Good Friday, with solemn remembrance of the ultimate sacrifice on the cross, brought salvation to all from the hand of God.

But that would not have been really complete if the Resurrection, Jesus coming back to life and rising from the dead, had not happened.

Acknowledging what Jesus did brings us eternal life.  Our bodies age and die, but our spirits get to live on and on – for always and forever.  The life we are living right now is merely a shell of what is to come.  How beautiful!  How amazing!  How forever!

Christ has risen!

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, http://www.innersunshine.net launched. Thank you for visiting!
