Soaring Sentiments: Easter

 On a golden springtime, underneath the ground,
A tiny seedling lay asleep until the sun shone down.
Awake, awake, O little seed! Push upward to the light!
The day is bright. With all your might, push upward to the light!

On a golden springtime, Jesus Christ awoke
And left the tomb where he had lain; the bands of death he broke.
Awake, awake, O sleeping world! Look upward to the light,
For now all men may live again. Look upward to the light!

On a golden springtime, in a forest glade,
The Father and the Son appeared as Joseph knelt and prayed.
Awake, awake, O nations all! Receive the gospel light!
The gospel true is here for you. Receive its glorious light!
~ Virginia Maughan Kammeyer 

"He is risen, as He said," Matthew 28:6 and He will come again, as He said.

I know our Savior, Jesus Christ lives.  I know He loves us. I know He is the Son of God. I know He is our friend. I know that through Him, His creations, His Atonement, and His Resurrection it is possible for all of us to return to our Father in Heaven and receive the  gifts of immortality, and eternal life and the endless joy that comes.

Happy Easter

  3. Happy Easter! We attended a beautiful and moving Easter Vigil mass last night, which starts in darkness, then candlelight, and gradually gets brighter to symbolize the light of the risen Christ.
