"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Remember me telling you in a past post - that at Easter time the pine trees grow something that looks like a cross on the end of them and it grows upwards.  

From fellow blogger Terri - in Florida - she sent me of her pine tree and the cross at the end of it!  

Isn't that cool?

See the tips of the pine?

Thank You Jesus for dying on the cross so that we could live. 

After Jesus rose from the dead HE came back to HIS disciples for 40 days.  

The Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles, and they became FIERCE FIGHTERS for HIM!  To the point of death!

Think about this - if they didn't - Christianity would NOT have spread across the ground (the only way to spread the message in those days).  

And by them spreading it on the ground it eventually reached the entire world. 

Think about that.

Easter begins their journey.

Hi, I thought I had commented here but I guess it was on FB.
Love your whole post about Easter and the Hope it gives to us who believe.

A lovely Easter post. Yes, He is Risen and has defeated death so that we may have eternal life. Thank you, Jesus.

I hope that your Easter celebration filled you with peace and hope. We had a quiet Easter since my son was not feeling well. He came today to get some Easter food.

I'll have to look for those pine crosses.

Take care. Hugs.
