Sunday Reflections… He is Risen ✝️

Happy Easter Morning! He is Risen! 

Mark 16 –

Jesus has risen! 

1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body.
2Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb
3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.
5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.
7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’

 

Have a blessed, reflective day. ✝️

 

“Blessed are those who have not seen and have yet believed.”

Today Is Good Friday

He said “It is finished”, we didn’t understand that It had just begun. Be thankful for His sacrifice on this, Good Friday.

 

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. – 1 Peter 2:24

Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf in springtime.  ~ Martin Luther

 

Peace & Love,

Veterans Day Weekend is Here | Thank You! To our Veterans | God Bless America!

Veterans Day is Sunday, November 11th. and honors all the men & women who have served and sacrificed for our country.

Sunday is Veterans Day! Thank a Veteran this weekend for their service!

Originally called Armistice Day because November 11th. was the day they signed the Armistice that put an end to WWI. Back then it only honored those who died in war. In 1954 the day became Veterans Day & now honors all who have served. So let’s all thank a veteran this weekend! Without all their sacrifices, we wouldn’t have the privileges & freedoms that we enjoy today.

Thank You to ALL Who Served!

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

Memorial Day. Monday, May 28th. 2018

Filed under: General Blog Entry's | Tags: , , , ,
Me·mo·ri·al Day / məˈmôrēəl ˌdā / noun
A day on which those who died in active military service are remembered, traditionally observed on May 30 but now officially observed on the last Monday in May. By act of congress Memorial Day became a federal holiday in 1971. Many still call the day ‘Decoration Day’… Today we honor the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. “All gave some. Some gave all”.

Decoration Day

Sleep, comrades, sleep and rest
On this Field of the Grounded Arms,
Where foes no more molest,
Nor sentry’s shot alarms!

Ye have slept on the ground before,
And started to your feet
At the cannon’s sudden roar,
Or the drum’s redoubling beat.

But in this camp of Death
No sound your slumber breaks;
Here is no fevered breath,
No wound that bleeds and aches.

All is repose and peace,
Untrampled lies the sod;
The shouts of battle cease,
It is the Truce of God!

Rest, comrades, rest and sleep!
The thoughts of men shall be
As sentinels to keep
Your rest from danger free.

Your silent tents of green
We deck with fragrant flowers
Yours has the suffering been,
The memory shall be ours.

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
