Easter Blessings



I've always loved Easter, and always will. For the Christian, this holiday is the most wondrous of all---because we are reminded of the most wonderful news we could ever hope to hear: Our Saviour conquered death, and lives forever!!! And.....we will live forever with Him! It just doesn't get any better than that. ~ So today as I dyed Easter eggs with my precious children (a tradition we love) and went about my usual "day before Easter" activities, I made certain to keep these thoughts at the forefront of my mind: Christ triumphed over death, He loves me and has forgiven all my sins, and I will live forever with Him. Praise the Lord for these most precious blessings! ~ He is not here: for He is risen. Matthew 28:6

Hi Patti Jo,
I have seen your comments on different blogs I follow and I wanted to get in touch with you! : ) I couldn't find an email address for you, but I did find your blog so I hope it's ok for me to send you a message here! I'm a GA mom, too, also a former teacher, now stay at home mom, and I would really like to get into writing! I've finished my first draft, now editing, and wanted to ask your advice on finding a crit. partner. I would really appreciate any advice or insight you have!
Thanks!

I enjoyed your interview by Keli. I can't wait for your novel to be published. God works in mysterious ways.

Thank you for an uplifting Easter post, also. Blessings to you, Patti Jo...

And your words to me have been a blessing. ~ Have a wonderful week, Patti Jo :)
