life as it is seen from my heart and soul

what is your story of Resurrection?
of when you heard the Holy Spirit in your heart and knew that Jesus was your Saviour?
because today is the day we celebrate the death of death in the death of Christ.
He rose from the earthly physical grave and defeated death.
His death was for me. (and you).
because of my sin, He died. He was perfect. Perfect.
He loved everyone no matter how they treated Him.
He commanded us to love. Love.
Love with no expectation. and i fail miserably at it.
i was 16 and had one of my Young Life leaders for lunch.
my family was moving. and she talked to me about Jesus.
and i got on my knees and said Yes to Christ.
which was a good thing because my life drastically changed.
my family imploded.
but God my Father was with me. i can see it like it was yesterday.
only that was 48 years ago.
little did i know the journey He would put me on.
the ups. the downs. the choices that would be before me.
i am so grateful for His mercy and love of me.
Christ is Risen!!! He is Risen Indeed!!!!

potential storm brewing

so in Texas they have had ice storms this week and i do feel for them.
ice is scary. snow can be too, but not like ice.
and now they say we are going to have a storm. 6-12″ of snow and blowing.
and i am hopeful i won’t have to get in my car and drive to work.
i love the ‘hunker down’ feel of winter.
because Spring is under the snow.
Resurrection of my garden and the grass and trees and bulbs.
and the Resurrection of Jesus. the Hope of the World.
so what storm are you in? what waves are you riding on?
remember you are not alone. Christ is with you if you believe.
He will not leave you to crash on the shore.
be strong. have faith. no matter how dark. no matter the howling winds.
you. are. not. alone.
