EASTER PROMISE


With OUR EYES we see

The beauty of Easter as the earth awakens once more...

With OUR EARS we hear

The birds sing sweetlyto tell us Spring again is here...

With OUR HANDS we pick the golden daffodils

and the fragrant hyacinths...

But only with OUR HEARTS

can we feel the MIRACLE of GOD'S LOVE

which redeems all men...

And only with OUR SOUL

can we make our 'pilgrimage to God

and inherit His Easter Gift of ETERNAL LIFE.

Helen Steiner Rice



What does Easter mean for us?


It’s about remembering where we’ve been, and finding the courage to continue on our journey: choosing hope over despair; seeing the “blessing” in the setback; and opening our arms instead of shutting others out.

Like Peter, it’s about looking for the Savior and seeing for ourselves the magnificence of the Creator - in larger-than-life-events, and in everyday moments.


We are the heirs of the promise – a new life in Christ!


'On Ya' - ma
