My Redeemer Lives

There are no words that can express my deep gratitude for what this day means to me and my family. In light of it being Easter Sunday today's Speak to My Soul will be short, sweet, and simple...

My Redeemer Lives!!!

We sat with our two boys tonight and watched "The Passion of the Christ", it was the boys first time watching it. We knew it would be emotional, but we felt strongly that it was time for them to "see it".

As we all sat and wept we were reminded that in spite of the pain, in spite of our sins, that He Lives and He Loves Each and Every One of Us (including YOU!)

Isaiah 53:5

But he was pierced for our transgressions,

he was crushed for our iniquities;

the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,

and by his wounds we are healed.

What an amazing love that is! Sit for a few minutes and watch this video and rejoice with me as we celebrate today, EASTER Sunday!



Beyond Blessed,

I've been thinking lately when to show that movie to my kids! Their both a little young yet, but I know that it will impact them! Friday at church they just saw a clip if it and I was able to have a talk with them about it! Have a Blessed Easter! CHRIST IS RISEN!!
