Happy Easter

I used to say 'Hoppy Easter'.  That's like saying 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas'.  I get the greeting across, but in the process I hopefully I don't offend anybody on either side of the Christian fence.

I am a 'Merry Christmas' kind of gal, so ...
Happy Easter!

Do not abandon yourselves to dispair.  We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
Pope John Paul II

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 NLT

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.
S.D. Gordon

But the angel said, "Do not be so surprised.  You are looking for Jesus, the Nazarene, who was crucified.  He isn't here!  He has been raised from the dead!"
Mark 16: NLT

Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.
Martin Luther

May the Lord bless you and protect you.
May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.
May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.
Numbers 6:24 - 26 NLT

He has risen!  He has risen indeed.
~ Dorothy
