"Six days later,

could make them."

The greatness and the power of God are overwhelming.
He is the Lord.

Half the lights in my house were out this morning.
Some worked and some did not.
The truck from the power company is parked
outside my house.
There is some kind of problem.

Yesterday I could not get in to update Spring To Life.
The computer at Novia was having problems.
It is working now.
Life is a challenge.

Jesus said,
"I am the light of the world."
John 9:5

It is a dark house without light.
It is hard to do anything.
It is a dark life without Jesus.
You need his light in your life.
He will show you the way.

"Jesus had not finished speaking
when the people from

Our newspaper printed this nice
Easter sermon yesterday.
God bless them.
I liked the line:
"You cannot take my life away!"

"'Women,' they asked her,
'why are you weeping?'
She answered them,
'Because the Lord has been taken away,
and I do not know where they have put him.'
She had no sooner said this than she turned around
and caught sight of Jesus standing there.
But she did not know him.
'Woman,' he asked her,
'why are you weeping?
Who is it you are looking for?'"
John 20:13-15

Jesus is right there.
You are in sorrow and pain.
He is there to comfort you.
Talk to him.
Open your eyes and see the risen Lord.
He is risen!

(April 8, 2012 Sun 6:30 AM CDT)

"Then the disciple who had arrived first
at the tomb went in.
He saw and believed."

Some see the empty tomb today.
Some see the risen Lord Jesus Christ.
It is an amazing sight.
Come and see.
Look at the nail prints in his hands.
It is your Savior.
See and believe.

Jesus went to Jerusalem.
He knew that he would suffer and die.

Give thanks to him for his generous love.
