I know this because I am celebrating Easter, and I know that God is not a God that is out there in outer space. No, He is a personal God; He cares what happens to us today, tomorrow and all our tomorrows. So, all our instances are God-filled.
I am going to live like Barb is now, with joy and with every day. I will live as if I am celebrating that Easter is real and Jesus Christ is risen. Because I believe to be true and I pray that you do, too. Holy God, Thank You for loving us so much that You died on a cross for us. Lord help us to have Your faith and to go into the world and share Your love.
Give us joy, mercy, peace and grace each day. Strengthen us that we may have hope and trust in Your goodness and mercy We are assured than when we leave this world we are united with You and all the saints that go before us in Your heavenly kingdom through Jesus our Lord and Savior. Amen.
