I'm up too early in the morning. But this one thought keeps coming back to my mind: What does Easter mean to me?
Very simply: He is RISEN. Death could not hold my Savior.
I am blessed to be friends with author Claudia Mair Burney on Facebook. This early Easter Morn, she posted this as her status:
"Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song." -- Pope John Paul II
I love this because it so beautifully announces that Jesus brought a hope eternal and abolished the grave - "WE are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song".
