{ Holy Week - Easter Sunday - HE LIVES }

One of the most exciting things to me about the

"Easter story".....
besides the fact that Jesus took my place to pay for my sins.....
besides all that.....
as if that isn't totally ENOUGH.....

I get so excited when I hear the part about how He appeared to WOMEN first!

Don't you know that happened for a reason?

Not only for those women living during that time, but also for us girls today.....
to let us know that He didn't just die for a chosen few, but for all of us.
It shows up what an important part women played in His earthly ministry.....
and still do today!!!

Then, even after Simon Peter's denial three times that he didn't even knew Jesus, he and John were the first to arrive at the tomb and discover that He had risen from the dead!

Again, that tells me that even though Peter did wrong, 
Jesus forgave Him.

Certain parts of the story just totally stand out in my mind,

and these are the two instances that touch my heart and remind me that

But, even more importantly....

Breathing in Grace,


  1. He is just so amazing, He knew what he was doing when all this was planned from the beginning. Can you imagine what He was thinking all along since the beginning of time with this event? I can't fathom His thoughts like He does. He is our Lord and Savior.



Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
