  3. Holley,

    Blessings to everyone this happy, Holy Easter Morning. Praying we all have a heart warming, inspiring church service & a great time with friends & family. Right now praising God that this world isn’t the end!! There is more to come & I’m ready to go anytime. Thanking our wonderful Savior who left the splendor of Heaven to come down to the messy middle between two Edens & rescue us. He bore ALL the pain even to the Cross-but Hallelujah He rose & is seated at the right hand of God the Father. We can all wear our crowns today as we are heirs of His. Jesus gave us hope, joy, love & life so that no matter the situation we can rest assured that it will work our for our best in the end! My heart is so grateful this morning for ALL He’s given me!!!

    Have a blessed Easter (Resurrection Day)!!

  5. Yes because of the Easter and Christmas stories we can rejoice. God also gave us the best present ever when we read them, and it only seems to be in most Churches we hear about Christmas and Easter at Christmas and Easter. We can open our Bibles and read them anytime. It does not have to be just Christmas time or Easter. To here about Jesus who came into the world born of a virgin born into no fancy place just a Manger. That was one best present God gave the world. The second was at God son then went to Calvary for me and you because he love us so much he Didn’t want us to die. He wanted us free of our sin. So at the Manger we are given the best present ever baby Jesus was born. Then he goes to on too the Cross for us. So we don’t need Easter or Christmas to Stop and pray a humble simple prayer of thanks to God for him for loving us enough to do this for us. Love Dawn xxx
    Happy Easter Thank you so much for another excellent reading xxx

  6. Holly,
    Thankful for your beautiful Easter prayer and for Jesus our Lord as we remember his greatest gift to us all, the chance of hope, love and truth that we can spend eternity with Jesus and God in the afterlife. I’d like to pray for all our brothers and sisters in Christ in Sri Lanka now as their celebrations were horrifically attacked with senseless acts of terror. God this world is getting more chaotic lately with these kinds of acts. Please heal, comfort and provide for those that are traumatised, that have lost love ones or are injured. I pray fo the hospital workers, the ambulance, police, counsellors and broken communities please give them your strength to help them do their jobs well in this crisis. Lord I ask you to put a blanket of angels over the whole of Srilanka right now. They need you, we need you. I hesitantly pray for the perpetrators too to be caught and may they find you in their lives. In your holy name, my lord Jesus, Amen

    • So true we have so much to be thankful for. Our brothers and Sisters in the world Sirlanka. Plus other parts of the world. The people that do this might get away with now on earth. But it does say in Gods word one day every knee will bow every tongue will confess Jesus Christ is Lord. I pray they get saved and repent for what they have done. One day if they don’t now they will have to face our maker. So lets as Christian pray for them and the people of Sirlinka. All the Aid works. Love Dawn xx

  7. No matter our circumstances, we have SO much to be thankful for because of Jesus: eternal hope, overflowing joy, unconditional love, and everlasting life–for starters. Thank you, Holley, for highlighting so beautifully our riches in Christ!
