Remembering the Day

So not only does our family have Spring Fever, but we have had a real fever as well...hence the no posts!  Hopefully it is all passing, and we can salvage the last bit of Spring Break.  As we approach the most important day of remembrance for a Christian, I wanted to share a poem.

I hope do you have a fantastic Easter.  Yes, I hope the kiddies have fun at their Easter Egg hunts.  I hope you can get the family dressed up pretty and be at church on time - Extra good luck if you attend a church that has a sunrise service :).  I hope you have a good meal and fellowship with family and friends.  But most importantly, I hope we all truly think and reflect on exactly what Jesus Christ did for us.  Exactly how important, how amazing, how loving, how wonderful this holiday is.  Everyday we should be thankful for His death, burial, and Resurrection.  Everyday we should be thankful if we have accepted His free gift of salvation.  But on Easter we are extra thankful as we celebrate exactly what it means to have a Savior that gave everything for us.

Today's Verse
"If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."  Romans 10:9

Remembering the Day
The day our Savior died for us
He took our sins upon Himself
And perished on that cross

Remembering the Day
The day our Savior’s blood was shed
He was punished for every person
Christ suffered, died and bled

Remembering the Day
The day they took Him off the cross
They declared Jesus dead
Was all hope really lost

Remembering the day
The day the veil was torn in two
He had paid the ultimate price
Christ died for me and for you

Remembering the day
The day placed Him in the tomb
His family and friends all mourned
Would He really come back soon

Remembering the day
The day He couldn’t be found
His tomb was completely empty
They began to look all around

Remembering the day
The day Jesus was raised from the dead
He had overcome it all
Everything was just as He said

Remembering the day
The day we celebrate each year
We call this time Easter
And we are grateful and full of cheer

Remembering the day
The day we accepted Jesus in our heart
When we believe in what He did
From His love we will never part
