We had a wonderful time at the beach today.
We arrived early when the beach was still quiet, and
the only sound we heard was the waves hitting the shore.
Absolutely delightful, and so very relaxing.

I watched as the sunlight danced across each wave, and
felt a deep sense of JOY in the beauty God put here
for us to enjoy. 

I am always in awe of His handiwork, and how it demonstrates
His great love for us.


NOTHING compares to the incredible love He showed us when
He had His only Son, who was perfect in every way,
die on the cross to pay the debt for our sins.

YES...your sin and mine.  Through the death and resurrection
of Jesus Christ, God made eternal life with
Him possible for all who ask Him into their hearts,
 and turn from their sin.

He paid the ultimate price so those who believe and confess
Him, can leave this earth and spend eternity in heaven!!!

I don't know about you, but when I heard that I knew I had
to get to know this wonderful God!!!

No other god in the history of mankind has done such an
amazing thing!

The Bible, the Word of God, is the only source that has accurately
predicted world events, including Jesus' death, burial and resurrection

The beauty is that you don't have to believe me...
you can read His Word and find out for yourself!!

So why am I posting about this?

Because the decision to ask Jesus into my heart is the single
most life changing decision I have ever made!!!

He has been with me since I was a mere 13 years old, and didn't
really understand hardly any of His Word!!!

Sweet friends, I am praying this Easter that each of you know the J-O-Y
of a personal relationship with Jesus.


I serve a risen Savior,
He's in the world today;
I know that He is living,
Whatever men may say;

I see His hand of mercy,
I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him
He's always near.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives

He walks with me and He talks with me
Along life's narrow way.

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives:
He lives within my heart!

In all the world around me
I see His loving care,
And tho my heart grows weary
I never will despair;

I know that He is leading
Thro' all the stormy blast,
The day of His appearing
Will come at last.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives
He walks with me and He talks with me
Along life's narrow way.

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives
He lives within my heart!

Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian,
Lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs
To Jesus Christ the King!

The hope of all who seek Him,
The help of all who find,
None other is so loving,
So good and kind.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives
He walks with me and He talks with me
Along life's narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives
He lives within my heart!

Jesus really does live!!

May you know His great love for YOU!!

Have a Blessed Easter!

  5. Blessings to you and your family Becky this Easter! I hope it's a wonderful day for you all.

    I'm just a wee bit envious over the sunny day you had at the beach. Dark, dreary and cold here with snow. Can you believe it. I think Mother Nature forgot to switch the weather machine over from winter to spring. Crazy stuff watching snow come down a couple of days from Easter.


  6. Hi sweetie, Love this-it says everything! Love the photos of the beach-your weather looks much nicer than mine. We went to the pool today but it poured so swimming was out and we girls just went shopping instead.
    Hugs and Happy Resurrection Day.
    Love you lots.
