Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won~ez_rsquo~t stay there.
Clarence W. Hall
The great gift of Easter is hope ~ez_ndash~ Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.
Basil C. Hume
Easter is a time to rejoice, be thankfull, be assured that all is forgiven so life extends beyond the soil of earth.
The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice.
Henry Knox Sherrill
The stars shall fade away, the sun himself
grow dim with age, and nature sink in years;
But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth,
unhurt amid the war of elements,
the wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.
Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices.
Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.
Floyd W. Tomkins
The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.
