What Easter Means To Me

It should have been me, instead of Thee, that hung upon that cruel tree. You were innocent, yet You paid the ultimate price. You were more than willing, to give Your life, as a sacrifice. I am so very aware, that as You hung there, it was me that was on Your mind. You died for my sins, You took them all upon Yourself. You died, so that I might live. You loved me that much, how deeply You have touched my heart. You gave, and gave, until You had to give Your precious life. That endless fountain that flows freely from Your veins, to save a wicked wretch like me. I thank You Jesus, I thank You. I will forever praise Your holy name. Thank You for showing true grace, when at Calvary, You took my place. I love You, and I am eternally grateful.

Hello Denise, I'm glad to visit your blog again. Quite busy of our English Camp.

Thanks for this reminder, here in Thailand "Easter" has no meaning. People didn't know what it means.

Even Filipinos staying here were not sure when is Easter. Thanks for your post.

Blessings be upon you now and always...

Just as the song goes, "I'll never know how much it costs, to see my sin upon that cross!"

I can't imagine.
