The JOY of Easter

Today, the first day of April, I wanted to share my verse to focus on for April. (you might remember my goal for the year 2010 was to find one verse a month to dwell on)

As a priest, Christ made a single sacrifice for sins,
and that was it!
Then he sat down right beside God
and waited for his enemies to cave in.
It was a perfect sacrifice
by a perfect person
to perfect some very imperfect people.
Hebrews 10: 12-13 The Message Bible
Not only are these great words and thoughts to dwell on but they really fit with Easter right around the corner. For the Christian church, Easter is a very special day for a couple reasons. One, our Redeemer lives - Two, He paid the ultimate price so we could seek forgiveness for our sins. For me, this is the HOPE that I live for.
I fit into that thought of "some very imperfect people" and I will forever be grateful for the sacrifice He made.

Gotta share another photo too. This is our kitty cat, she has gotten so big. We are all playing in the backyard and she just loves to be around us.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
