i have never doubted what i believe.  many find it terribly difficult
to trust or yield to something they can't see or touch, and i respect
that, but to me He is as the air i breathe.  i can't see, smell, or feel 
it, but i  know it's there.
  
that's how simply i believe God's plan for His creation.  He sent 
His Son to earth in the form of a baby, and  i am convinced that 
baby grew into a Man, respected and reviled, who preached the 
kingdom of God.


once He had offended the appropriate people, they crucified Him.  
imagine their surprise when He didn't "stay."


after He arose, He was seen by 500 people according to
st. paul in 1 corinthians.


He is risen!


love,
lea

Those early Christians...I feel such a love and respect for them. The Word says that we will have a special blessing because we've not seen or heard, but those early men and women...amazing! And they certainly set the bar high once they were filled with the Holy Spirit. Thanks for the great Easter link above. too.

Our Easter services were wonderful, too. Big crowd at 8:30 and hardly a seat left at 11:00. The choir sang "The Easter Song" which is yet another favorite of mine.

Speaking of which, I caught your solo of "The Holy City" on the replay before I left for church Sunday morning. It was beautiful!!!
