What Easter means to me.

  • A fresh start.
  • A clean start.
  • Forgiven pasts.
  • True Love that lasts.
  • A Holy embrace.
  • A face to Face.
  • Mans peace restored forevermore.
  • Love far and wide for me, His bride.
  • The Saviour Divine,
  • Forever mine.
  • No longer blind, now Christ I see.
  • Thats what Easter means to me.

For Reflection:  God designed me. Created me. Blesses me. Heals me. Defends me. Forgives me. Love me.                GodFruits.com

I Choose…..

To live by choice,not by chance;
To make changes,not excuses;
To be motivated,not manipulated;
To be useful, not used;
To excel, not compete.
I choose self-esteem,not self pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice,not the random opinions of others.

For Reflection: I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the Land of the living. Psalm 27:13

For Reflection: Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him.      Psalm 62.5
