Happy Easter

Spring is a time when many faiths celebrate special holidays.  I celebrate Easter and wanted to post a poem; but my mind kept coming back to a contemporary hymn by Stuart Townend.  I hope this conveys how much we all are loved, and I send my wish to everyone for peace, love and acceptance.

How Deep The Father’s Love For Us

How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
 
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory
 
Behold the man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
 
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished
 
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
 
Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
 
Daily Inspiration
 
 
 
 Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time. 
 
Martin Luther
