The Easter Prayer of Thanks

The Easter Prayer of Thanks "2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow." Matt 28:2-3 NIV God, thank you for the gift of Easter; The sacrifice of your Son so treasured. To save our souls through your grace and mercy, That by heaven alone can be measured. Thank you for giving us hope; The hope of life after the grave. Winter dies and Spring comes to life— The resurrection of the saved! Your hand rules the universe With great glory and power. We give thanks for your love for us, And for every beautiful opening flower. We thank you for the birds That sing your praises every morn, And for the lofty mountains That with Winter's snow you adorn. Thank you for friends and family And the blessings that they bring, At this very special time— Christ's resurrection and the grandeur of Spring! Thank you for salvation Made possible by your love. Thank you that we have the hope of heaven— Easter's promise from above. May we all meet our Redeemer, As you come for us in the air, Because of Easter's hope of eternity, and the privilege of prayer! Amen Copyright © 2012 Maureen LeFanue

    Ps...You should do a blog on your greeting cards and let the soupers know what a lovely product it is you sell...I was floored and so was Roger and the kids...simply gorgeous and even more elegant in real life than from looking at the website on the internet. A great ministry, Maureen! So proud of your creativity and how you are using it!

    Maureen...This poem is so appropriate for the next week as we remember our Savior...He's being persecuted regularly on the news and in the media..They mock and scorn His name, His image, and His people regularly. A prayerful reflective Easter season it is for me!...I received the package yesterday..the contents were unfortunately wet...I salvaged what I could and will be using the cards for the patients at work..They will be blessed from your gift. I may print this poem and read it to them as well. Love, Gwendolen
