Happy Easter

Happy Resurrection Day!

I haven’t blogged in a while because…well…you don’t want to know why. It was just one of those things, so to speak. But all is good now, and I couldn’t be happier to make it back in time to wish everyone a HAPPY EASTER.

Celebrating victory over death is cause for celebration indeed! Having an eternal connection to the Holy spirit is invaluable, to say the least. Earthly connections pale by comparison -- they’re fleeting, lacking in promise and most definitely lacking in life beyond the grave. Cheers to The connection for life and eternity: Jesus.

Ok, enough preachy stuff.

But I do want to wish everyone, not only a Happy Easter, but also a happy spring filled with everything except Covid-19. It’s hard to believe two years have passed since the first lockdown. What a miserable politically-induced health fiasco that was. Please Lord, have mercy on us, no more pandemics. (Yet, then again, we thank him for the not-so-good things (pandemics) too! Don't ask Why, ask Who! I know, I know, the bible is complicated.)

Jeff and I attended 11 a.m. Easter service at Church of the Apostles. We were joined by a dear friend, Gail, her husband, daughter, and son-in-law, as well as, our daughter and son-in-law. Dr. Michael Youssef’s service was uplifting, inspiring and full of praise, as it always is. The Word isn't watered down at Church of the Apostles. Michael teaches the Truth, not feel good stuff. And, ya, the Truth hurts sometimes. But...it's the Truth...

God has been so good to me and my family. Giving thanks, giving back, and worshiping Him is a humbling honor. Having a personal, spiritual relationship with God is the greatest gift I’ve ever received. I’ve never been a religious person per se (ok, except for coffee and exercise) but I'm gung-ho about my private relationship with God. It’s a private club…just me and Him. Or, YOU and Him?

Happy Easter, again, I hope you had a wonderful day.

Thank you for reading!

Love, Shelley
