Happy Easter To You!
This weekend we are celebrating Easter Sunday –
A day that commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ
Who died for the sins of the world!
Enjoy the stories.
Enjoy the music.
Enjoy this special edition of Inspire Me Monday and
Have a blessed week!
Like the disciples after Jesus’ crucifixion,
I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that
Life doesn’t always turn out the way we imagine.
I’m still trying to comprehend why God would allow
All this suffering and hardship in the world.
But I have hope.
I have hope that one day we will all stand
At the empty tomb of this life’s suffering and,
Like the apostles on Easter morning,
God will begin to open our eyes.
He will help us to see how He resurrected
Even the greatest pain and suffering in our lives.
Has life turned out differently than you planned?
Matt Maher & Audrey Assad – Lord I Need You
The world hurts.
The evil can be overwhelming.
The pain crushing…
I become angry and depressed at times…
BUT – the bottom line is I make a choice to believe,
To have faith, that God knows what is best for me.
He asks me to trust and believe.
As I sit here, I find myself asking –
Lord, how can I not?
Matt Maher – Because He Lives (Amen)
It isn’t always easy, this thing called life.
Actually, it’s really, really hard at times.
It can sometimes feel hopeless…
It can sometimes feel like death…
Don’t miss This Thing Called Life –
A story of betrayal – and hope…
And redemption… and grace…
And the extraordinary things that can happen when
We turn to God in the midst of our pain.
Matt Maher – Your Grace Is Enough
Families 411 – Do You Celebrate Life?
How are you living your life today?
Are you celebrating life?
Families 411 shared this quote by Kevyn Aucoin:
Today I choose life.
Every morning when I wake up I can
Choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain…
To feel the freedom that comes from being able to
Continue to make mistakes and choices –
Today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.
Craig Wayne Boyd – The Old Rugged Cross

There are fairies everywhere:
Under bushes, in the air,
Playing games just like you play,
Singing through their busy day.
So listen, touch, and look around —
In the air and on the ground.
And if you watch all nature’s things,
You might just see a fairy’s wing.
