Easter Greetings

Easter FlowersHi Friends,

I wanted to wish you all a happy Easter! I hope you’re finding some special ways to celebrate the resurrection with family and friends. Last week I packed up boxes and mailed Easter surprises to my grandkids, including Peeps, candy, and devotionals for the older kids. On Sunday we will be hosting an Easter breakfast at Calvary Chapel Living Hope and then enjoying a special worship service with our church family. If you live nearby, we would love to have you join us at 9:00 for breakfast and 10:00 for our worship service. Here’s a link to our church website with info and directions.

I love Easter! The arrival of spring and seeing nature come back to life is a great reminder of all Jesus did for us through His life, death, and resurrection. It gives me a renewed perspective on life and great hope for the future.

Do you have that kind of hope . . . do you know Him?

This weekend we celebrate Jesus . . . our awesome Savior and Lord, who loved us enough to leave all the wonders of heaven, walk the earth and experience life here, then He took the death penlty for our sin and rose from the dead to give us hope of eternal life. That’s a great reason to celebrate!
