Spring Has Sprung

After the Winter, God Sends the Spring
by Helen Steiner Rice
Springtime is a season
Of hope and joy and cheer.
There’s beauty all around us
To see and touch and hear.
So, no matter how downhearted
And discouraged we may be,
New hope is born when we behold
Leaves on a budding tree,
Or when we see a timid flower
Push through the frozen sod
And open wide in glad surprise
Its petaled eyes to God,
For this is just God saying,
“Lift up your eyes to Me,
And the bleakness of your spirit,
Like the budding Springtime tree,
Will lose its wintry darkness
And your heavy heart will sing” –
For God never sends the Winter
Without the joy of Spring.

Preparing for Easter...

Jesus loves me. How do I Know?
He died on the cross to show me so.
He died on the cross to set me free.
That’s how I know Jesus loves me.
He died on the cross for all my sins.
He opened up Heaven to let me in.
Jesus loves me. I know it’s true.
He died on the cross for me and for you!

Forty Days of Lent

Image result for christian lent 2019 images

The early Christians observed with great devotion the days of our Lord’s passion and resurrection. It became the custom of the Church that before the Easter celebration there should be a forty-day season of spiritual preparation.  During this season the whole congregation is reminded of the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel and death of Jesus Christ  and the need we all have to renew our trust and faith in Christ.
We are all invited therefore to observe a holy Lent by
self-examination and repentance;  by prayer, fasting and self-control and by reading and meditating on God’s Holy Word.  Through these forty days may we walk with Christ through the wilderness and be guided anew to the Promised Land; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who Lives and reigns
with God and the Holy Spirit, now and forevermore.  Amen.
