He is Risen !

O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory? ......1 Corinthians15:55

"Come, see the place where the Lord lay," with joy and gladness. He does not lie there now. Weep, when ye see the tomb of Christ, but rejoice because it is empty. Thy sin slew him, but his divinity raised him up. Thy guilt hath murdered him, but his righteousness hath restored him. Oh! he hath burst the bonds of death, he hath ungirt the cerements of the tomb, and hath come out more than conqueror, crushing death beneath his feet. Rejoice, O Christian, for he is not there—he is risen.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Praise Him for the wonderful thing He has done for us !
He is Risen !
He is Risen , Indeed!

Love & Blessings,

Rubber Cow Duckies

The Cow

The friendly cow all red (black) and white,
I love with all my heart:
She gives me cream with all her might ,
To eat with apple tart.
She wanders lowing here and there ,
And yet she cannot stray,
All in the open pleasant air ,
The pleasant light of day;
And blown by all the winds that pass
And yet with all the showers,
She walks among the meadow grass
And eats the meadow flowers
Robert Louis Stevenson

They have a separate very fun play and dining area are for the kiddies .It looks like a fun place for a Birthday Party.

Love these cow ducks .

Well, the cows are coming home , so I guess it's time for me to end this post .

I am linking to Rednesday and Ruby Tuesday.

We are Loved

Truth- We are very Loved

Who shall separate us from the Love of Christ ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written :

" For your sake we face death all day long ; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered "(Ps 44:42)

No , in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us . For I am convinced that neither death nor life , neither angels nor demons , neither the present nor the future , nor any powers , neither height nor depth , nor anything thing else in all creation will be able to separate us from the Love of God ,that is in CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD .
Romans 8: 35-39

Love is Fire

The father said to the son , Tell Me , My child , thy heart's desire .
The son said , My heart's desire is to be like my Lord , who having loved his own , loved them unto the end .The Father said ,But love is fire, consuming fire . Dost thou ask for fire?
The son thought of some who had not shank back from fire .Their way had become a fiery way .
Few would understand , many would blame as they walked in that way . It looked an impossible way. But His Father was surprised that he used so faithless a word: Am I not the God of the Impossible ? Dare to believe for the impossible . Very soon, it will be said , They walked in the midst of the stones of fire, more than conquerors . They sang as if it were a new song .

Excerpt from : His Thoughts Said ....His Father Said..... By Amy Carmichael

JJ Heller -Live - What Love Really Means

Until we know Christ and accept Him as our Savior we are all condemned.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is Eternal Life in CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD."
Romans 6 : 23
