Easter Grace-Gifts

Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we've been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven — and the future starts now! ~ 1 Peter 1:3-4 (The Message)
Grace is love that cares and stoops and rescues.  ~ John R.W. Stott
Counting grace-gifts, with a heart forever grateful for the ultimate Grace-gift given to us that day at Calvary... the day that changed the course of history!

  1. Very thankful for His saving grace too! That robin singing in your backyard will likely begin nest building very soon.
