Welcome Back and Happy Sunday!
I'm so glad that you're here!
Spring has finally started here in Manitoba, Canada!
The Canadian geese have arrived, there are huge puddles everywhere with no shortage of mud anywhere, and I'm waiting to see the first robin red breast on the yard!
Spring however, also brings with it a very important holiday for Christians...that would be Easter of course! While Christmas is important to our faith...it would be nothing without Easter! The sacrifice that our Lord and Saviour made to reconcile us to Himself is nothing short of amazing!
While the bunny images, spring flowers and little chicks are very cute around this time of year...please, let's not forget the reason we have Easter! Jesus took our sins upon himself while on the cross that we could experience forgiveness and have a relationship with Him...as well as defeating the enemy! We know how the story ends and while things may seem mixed up in this world, and it may seem that the evil one has taken over...as Christians we know that God's word stands and one day our Lord and Saviour will return! We know that if we confess God as our Lord and Saviour, believe on His name, confess our sins and follow His word, He has promised us eternal life with Him in paradise!
"Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
Did you read that? Jesus is the resurrection and the life! If we believe in Him, we will live even after we die...that's eternal life with God forever...all He requires of us is to believe in Him!
We have a new challenge starting today at Mustard Seed Faith Challenge Blog, and the theme of the challenge for the next two weeks if you haven't guessed already is Easter!
I wanted to portray the real meaning for the holiday in my creation...so I chose to work with the Flowering Dogwood Collection by Heartfelt Creations which has some beautiful imagery of the cross, delicate doves as well as a lovely church...and of course the dogwood flower which has a lovely Easter legend tied to it! If you've never heard the legend, be sure to google it!
Allow me to share with you my Easter creation...
I've also used the beautiful decorative window die also created by Heartfelt Creations.
I thought it worked so well with that lovely church image!
So now it's your turn!
I do hope you will share your Easter themed projects with us at Mustard Seed Faith Challenges!
I also hope that during this Easter season you set aside some time to think about the real meaning of the holiday and take time to thank our Heavenly Father for His sacrifice!
Until next time...
