Mercy...

Today is a day of celebration!  He is risen!  But it's also a day of introspection.  Lately I've been thinking a lot about mercy and, most especially, God's mercy toward us.  And on no day is that mercy more evident than on Easter, when we celebrate Jesus's resurrection and the living hope we now have because of it.  God could have left us in our sin filled state, but He didn't.  He made a way for us. He had a plan of redemption.  It wasn't easy, for Jesus or the Father, but their sacrifice changed everything.  And I could not be more grateful!

Happy Easter to you and yours!


"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who according to His great mercy has given us a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you." 
1 Peter 1:3-4
