Blessed Easter!


Thank You for the gift of HOPE
You gave us on Easter morning.
Because of You we know
That no problem is too difficult
And even death does not
Have power over us.

Thank You for the gift of JOY
You gave us when You were resurrected.
Because of You we know
That no matter how challenging life may be,
In the end, we will rejoice again.

Thank You for the gift of LOVE
You gave us when You laid down Your life.
Because of You we know
That there is no sin too great to separate us
And we are incredibly valuable to You.

Thank You for the gift of LIFE
You gave us when You left the tomb.
Because of Easter we know
This world is just the beginning
And we will spend forever in heaven with You.

We celebrate You, JESUS
With hearts full of praise and gratitude
For who You are and all You’ve done for us!

Answered Prayers

I received this on e-mail today from a friend. Too good to not share.

Prayers Can't Be Answered Unless They Are Prayed

Life without purpose is barren indeed -
There can't be a harvest unless you plant seed,
There can't be attainment unless there's a goal,
And man's but a robot unless there's a soul...
If we send no ships out, no ships will come in,
And unless there's a contest, nobody can win...
For games can't be won unless they are played,
And Prayers can't be Answered unless they are Prayed...
So whatever is wrong with your life today,
You'll find a solution if you kneel down and pray.
Not just for pleasure, enjoyment and health,
Not just for honors and prestige and wealth...
But Pray For A Purpose to Make Life Worth Living,
And Pray For The Joy of Unselfish Giving,
For Great Is Your Gladness and Rich Your Reward
When you make your Life's Purpose the choice of the Lord.

America's Dream: Chasing Happiness

The current Billy Graham Evangelistic Association TV program is wonderful! And not just because one of my favorite Bible teachers, Pastor Bob Coy, gives his testimony in this program . It also has the football coach of the college team by where I'd like to retire (Boone, NC - Appalachian State University), and the current bull riding champion, Wiley Petersen, along with wonderful music by Michael O'Brien, Third Day and Matthew West.
Watch and enjoy!

I love this quote about creation!

Saint Augustine taught that God created the world out of nothing. Creation was something like the magician pulling a rabbit out of hat. Except God didn't have a rabbit and He didn't have a hat.
