Christ the Lord was crucified,
He was nailed to a rough hewn cross.
Ridiculed by those He came to save,
Innocent man paid the ultimate cost.
Shedding His blood to pay for our sin - He died.
Three days later He rose from the grave - Alive!
Inconceivable, indescribable, miraculous event.
Son of God, Savior, God's greatest gift!
Rejoice in the Lord! All praise to our King!
In pure adulation let Hallelujahs ring!
Shout to the Lord! He has conquered the grave!
Evermore He's alive - Believe and He'll save.
New life in Jesus is available today!.

E arly Easter morning, Amy Sue

T o empty out its contents on the floor:
E ggs hard boiled, dyed, and sweet ones too,
R abbits made of chocolate, even more. . .
B ut none of these an impact on her made.
A my rose to get her soft white shawl.

K issed the forehead of this baby doll,
E nfolded it and in the basket laid
T he babe she named for Him who gave His all.

When I saw him upon the cross my heart and mind did ache.
How I could allow this to happen, I must do something, I thought.
An Angel came into my soul, saying he would be reborn.
Three days, then he will rise up into heaven, not to forsake.
Easter day will be remembered for the day he rose to be sought.
Angels will rejoice his rise into his father’s kingdom newly born.
Stories of healings, miracles performed; journeys he did make.
Telling of his sacrifice for all humankind, our salvation bought.
Evil finally destroyed as the earthly waters and mountains are torn.
Revelations tells of his ultimate glorious return, for our soul’s sake.
My soul embraced promises the Angels sang and continually taught.
Every hour, minute, I watched my heart sank into painful scorn.
Another Angel came to me, said do not falter his word, or break.
Never forget the love and companionship, all the happiness he brought.
Sincerity and remembrance is what our lord desires with blessings to adorn.
Take these words and sights to the future; tell them it was no mistake.
Our Lord in Heaven, Gods Son, will return; when final battle is fought.
My children are forgiven all sins; listen closely for the sound of Gabriel’s horn.
Every believer with true love, will live forever, there will be no way, for to fake.

E ach Wednesday evening we eat soup and bread,
A simple meal like one our Savior ate.
S upping with dear and closest, trusted friends,
T aking the food to meet His coming fate.
E very one is regretfully afraid,
R ealizing that our loved Savior dies.
R evolted that our own dark, grievous sin
I s causing Him to ride to His demise.
T raveling fearfully with Him to His doom
U ntil his death on Cross on Black Friday.
A ll of us mourn and sorrow by the tomb.
L ooking to promise we'll see Him again.
S unday brings that most astounding vision.
He has risen!! Our Christ is arisen!!

T This mournful yet glorious story,
H Hath ever set our eyes on Glory!
E Entombed in an unsullied grave,
O On the Cross for us His life He gave!
L Lamb of God destined to sit on His Father's throne,
D Death He overcame for our transgressions to atone!
R Resurrected on the third day to live forever,
U Undefiled He promised to leave us never!
G Guards placed upon His brow a rustic crown of thorn;
G Gamblers cast lots for the garments He had worn.
E Early that glorious Easter Morn the tomb was bared!
D "Don't be alarmed!" an Angel of the Lord declared!
C "Christ is risen! He is risen! Spread the word!
R Rallying o'er the grave foretold by the prophets has occurred!"
O Overcome with joy His Disciples recalled Jesus' promise:
S Saying, "I'll die and rise again!" (Convinced was even Doubting Thomas!)
S So often debased by man, He rose to become The King of Kings!

Son of God
Alpha and Omega
Light of the World
Name above all names:
(Happy Easter !)
Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under Heaven
given among men whereby we must be
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted
Him, and given Him a Name which is above

The only way to get away
Heavy is the load
Every sin we ever committed
Christ has taken the blame
Renewed in us the sprit
Our souls have been set free
Safe from Gods righteous judgment
Salvation this Easter week
(Happy Easter To All My Soup Frinds.)

Earthen shell broken and placed, in
Agony upon Golgotha's cross, a
Savior redeems hope for mankind.
True love is stronger than death, while
Easter brought first resurrection.
Rejoice now, in remembrance of Him.

The truth of the matter is that the “I doubt it” label has always been assigned to me; but in reality, I and all the Apostles doubted.
Hopeless, fear, and doomed were the highly charged emotions that we all felt.
Over and over, he taught us about his resurrection; but we did not understand.
Multitudes were fed; mighty miracles were performed; but no one could help him.
After his death, we were in hiding, because we thought that we would be next.
But absolutely everything changed when at
Sunrise, the world’s greatest surprise arose, and lit up the skies of our frightened hearts!

Most women on Easter Sunday
Morning wear festive and elegant
Bonnets to match their bright
Dresses; men wear lighter, sharp
Suits with cheery feeling, not the
Usual dark ones that are so
Depressing and their neckties must be
Perfect! Coming out of the church in
Throngs, they seem brides and grooms
Again...chatting and smiling at one
Another, knowing that He was,
Risen and gone to Heaven to
Prepare a place for them and their
Children...shouldn't they rejoice
Today? And sitting at an exquisite
Table they say Grace, while Easter
Eggs and bunnies tempt them with their
Lively colors and sweet smell! Even the
Dogs and cats hide underneath the table for
An unforgettable, delicious dessert!

Except the fact, He died for all our sins.
Almighty Gods’ Son showed us love.
Sincerity of the most precious gift for all,
Taking our sins upon the cross to bear,
Enveloped love in his daring passion.
Rebirth for all from a single, simple belief
Life is precious, but the hereafter is more.
Inside us all is a choice, we make alone.
Veraciously, we are upon the threshold.
Each one chooses, do not deny, betray or hide.
Say these words, “I believe he died for me“.
