Easter, He Is Risen~ He is Risen Indeed



Mark 16:1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.

Mark 16:2 And very early in the morning the first [day] of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

Mark 16:3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?

Mark 16:4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

Mark 16:5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.

Mark 16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.




John 19:28) After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

John 19:30) When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Mark 15:38) And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.

Mark15:39 )And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said
, Truly this man was the Son of God

  5. He did many miracles, raised the dead, walked on water. And when He asked them to stay with him while he went to pray to His Father to ask if this cup may pass from Him, His disciples all fell asleep, "Could you not keep watch one hour?". His Father did not take away the plan of fate after He begged "Abba Father, everything is possible for you!" and so He surrendered to the Highest Will of God alone. And when they hung Him on the Cross, they cast lots for His clothes. His garments were seamless, woven in one piece top to bottom. And in the 9th hour He called to His Father and said "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" After He called "Eloi, Eloi!" they taunted Him once more offering Him vinegar and He with a loud cry, breathed His last breath giving up His ghost. The temple was rent, tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. Mt, Mark, Luke NIV Thank you Deena. church

  6. Thank you Deena for reminding me at this very moment to take the time out of my busy hustle bustly day to really focus on what Jesus did for us ~ he died on the cross for ME ~ Oh my gosh, I really need to take the time to let that soak in my head and thank Him again for such a sacrifice as that ~
    Thank you Jesus !!!

  31. Church says: Our Miss Deena is not feeling well after last Friday's Chemo. The last 2 Chemos have left her weak and not able to eat and she is even having trouble keeping water down. She's in bed today, Monday. Deena did not get to have a family Easter as she is not allowed to be around any germs etc. That is what the Dr's. have advised her. As we all know she really loves her family time and not only has she had to confront this illness but she has become isolated at home because of it. So let's all say extra extra prayers and send her all the healing energy/God's light that we can.
    Deena, everybody is thinking of you Miss Deena....don't you doubt. There will be an end to this. The only way to it is thru it. Blessings.

  32. so glad you let us know how deena is doing, church...i'm so sorry that she wasn't able to share with her family, as that encourages....but as you said...the only way to it, is through it...thinking of you sweet friend.....and praying that you will be getting stronger with each coming day....and God gives you comfort during this time.....love to you.

  34. Thank you Church,
    for letting us know how our sweet Deena is doing...I was afraid that this last chemo would take it's toll on her...
    Please let her know that I am holding her, Rich, and the rest of the family up in prayer every day...I know that the next few months will be very difficult..so I pray for added strength...
    Deena dear...rest, play sweet music...and listen to God give you comfort...
    Be Encouraged,
    I love you,
    Mimi

  35. Deena, so sorry you are not doing well. I will be praying for you.

    Hebrews 13:20
    May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

  37. OK...we're not going to worry about a Spring...there's more ahead. Let's shoot for Fall leaves and Thanksgiving with your whole family and no more worries about wigs. Your hair will be short but growing, you'll be laughing and teasing your kids, your grands will forget all about the long time they didn't get to visit. It will be past and all be just a laugh. I am telling you, you CAN do this...you will do this. You already got PG to a year and that is just one thing...there is so much more for you to create. Ya know how the paper work would pile up on your bankers desk but you just had to do it before going home?! Ok, this is just more desk work...you just do it....and then it will be over. You got thru the losses and were a single mother, it's gone, see how far you've come?! You'll see, there are more laughs, more Starbucks, more Bed and Baths, more talks with your girls, more guidance for those little boys that will be men.
    You're going to do this. 3 more Chemos, and that part is over. The worst is over. We have you, we all carry you, God's got you. You'll see. XO Church

  43. Dearest Deena,
    you are going through the darkest part of the tunnel...look to the light at the end of this tunnel...
    place one foot in front of the other, (remembering you must go through it to get to the end)...
    when you can no longer take a step, close your eyes, breathe deeply and God will lift you and carry you to the end
    Love and praying...
