"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
John 3:16-17
When I think of what God has done for me, all else pales beside it. We may lose everything we love in this life but if we have Jesus. We have everything. Have a blessed Easter.

A beautiful post, Nita. In the Russian Orthodox church I grew up in, during the Easter service, we exchanged this greeting, "He is risen", "Truly He is risen!" with a hug and kisses on each cheek.

Have a Happy and Blessed Easter!
