The proof the opposition to Jesus demanded that He was the Son of God, is the very proof I cherish that He is the Son of God—He remained on the cross! If Jesus would have saved Himself he could not have saved me. Thank you Jesus, for enduring the shame, indignity, and suffering of the Crucifixion…what wondrous love! (Matthew 27:43)
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and loose heart. Hebrews 12:2-3.
Deep in their hearts our children are searching for the “Eggstraordinary” Love of God. This Easter take them on an “Egg” hunt that will assure them of God’s personal love for each one of them. The great Truth in their Easter basket is that God allowed His Son to remain on the cross…what wondrous love!
The Crucifixion Account: Matthew 27:32-44, Mark 15:21-32, Luke 23:26-43, John 19:16-27

Tonight, we had Mass of the Lord’s Supper which includes the priest washing the feet of 12 parishioners. Our choir sang the song Kellie sang on the CD you gave me a few years ago called How Beautiful! It made me realize how connected we all are on the path to Jesus and eternity. Hope all is well. I broke my wrist in September and took a long time to heal. Just getting back into my photography and the next chapter in life. Tell Paul I said “hello”.
Rae…Amazing! We just came from a service at our new faith community in SC. Feet were washed and How Beautiful was sung. You see, there is no distance in the Lord. We are one as we celebrate the “Egg”straordiinary Love of God.
