The cross

I am so excited about this Easter...(no not just because I can drink Mt. Dew again)
Ever since I became a believer...every "Christian" holiday means more and more to me every year. Mainly because during the past year, I feel like I have grown so much in my faith in God. Do I know everything...aaahhh NO...do I have so much more to learn...aaahhh YEAH!
I am truely so greatful for the price that Jesus paid for all of us. I could not imagine knowing how your life would end, and in such a violent way...yet he died for us anyway even knowing what was ahead of him.
So may you all be full in the spirit of Easter and not only for the PEEPS or tasty food or candy eggs...but for the CROSS.
He came and left...so we could leave and come to HIM.

by Maya Angelou

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean livin''
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain..
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,

I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!
