He Is Risen!



Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there.  ~Clarence W. Hall


Before fully opening, lilies assume a trumpet shape. This shape represents God the Father calling his Son Jesus home, which is a great source of joy for Christians. The choice of white lilies indicates purity and freedom from sin through Jesus' death on the cross. Legend holds that lilies grew wherever Jesus' tears fell, offering hope to believers.


" Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave.  And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.  And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.  He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”
Matthew 28

In North Europe most Christians who do not practise their religion forget about the meaning of Easter. They think it is all about chocolate eggs. Thanks for reminding us about the true meaning. Have a nice easrter Ginny.
