A Season of Celebration

Yesterday was the day, tomorrow is the day!  Yesterday we celebrated Good Friday, tomorrow we celebrate the Resurrection!  Because of Jesus' life death and resurrection you have hope.  We have new lease on life daily.  We have a chance to do it differently, to try again, to forgive, to move on, to grow- this time.  Yesterday may have held pain, sorrow, treachery, difficulties greater than can be imagined, loneliness; ah BUT GOD! 

God loves us so much that we can see differently -today. We can feel differently -today.  We can try another way- today. Yeah, no one understood us yesterday- but today we are assured that because of God's mercies and His great love for us we can claim this day!  It is the present- our present- God's gift.  God's gift to us -  His only son, Jesus, gives us what we need today to grasp everything that God has for us.

Slow down, you're thinking too hard.  God loves you and you have a chance!!!!!  You are His Beloved and trust me- He is with you.  You what is crazy?  I said, "trust me,"  and you thought okay, what does God have for me?  (or something like that)  Anyway - God says, "trust me,"  and that frightens you. You have Holy Spirit to guide you, to walk with you, so whatever the day, the season brings, you can make it.  Jesus' resurrection was so much more than you can imagine- all for you.  He really loves you.  Yesterday was the day, today is your present from God- your life.  Unwrap it,  play with the paper,  explore the gift.  Tomorrow is your future.  You can't begin to understand how awesome tomorrow will be if you do not learn from yesterday and if you miss today.  Celebrate the resurrection of Jesus tomorrow! It is all about His obedience to His Father and His Father's love for you. This is a season of Celebration! type to you later.
