Christ Rises from the Dead

Easter:  Mercy Walks, Hope is Renewed.


Where do you need mercy?  What has dimmed your hope?

Freedom

"Where there is great love, there are always miracles."  
 Willa Cather

. . .but do we want to see miracles not of our planning?

We Have A Mission


"God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work.  I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place, while not intending it if I do but keep His commandments.  Therefore, I will trust Him, whatever I am,
I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him, in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. He may take away my friends. He may throw me among strangers. He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me. Still, He knows what He is about."  John Henry Cardinal Newman

Kindly Thoughts ~ The Soil of Peace

"God has been very good to me, for I never dwell upon anything wrong which a person has done, so as to remember it afterwards. If I do remember it, I always see some other virtue in that person."
Saint Teresa of Avila

Noticeably Different?

 If someone was following you around today, would he say he was with a good person...or with a Christian?  Is there a difference?

His Face

What do you see in Jesus' face - here in this painting?  What do you want to see?  Ask Jesus what He longs for you to see?  Ask and then wait...quietly...don't rush...seek...patiently...the loving voice/sign of Jesus speaking to you.  Are you willing to believe?

Light or Darkness?

When other people look at your face what do you want them to see? What do they see?
