“Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father.  Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.”
John 13:1

Hello friends– This year for Lent I determined to pull out my little concordance and track down scripture that tells of the love of God for us– his abounding faithful love.  I wanted it to wash over me for these 40 days.

And in these weeks, three heartfelt prayers answered, brought a joy of feeling loved and held in his hand.  It was glorious.

But in this last couple days, I’ve had to trust in God’s love in different ways as unexpected troubles have clouded life and obscured that joy.

That’s where Easter is our hope, our stay.  Jesus came to show the “full extent of his love.”  Loving enough to die for us– loving us through every bit of life, in joys and when things look grim.  I am thankful.

Hoping you have a wonderful, worshipful time with friends and family on this Easter.  Blessings.  xox

  1. praying you are all OK and that you enjoy Easter with family and friends…we need to plan another lunch when you get out of school this year!!!

    • Yes, let’s sit and talk. Things have been going so well– and then Larry’s mom broke her hip and had surgery this morning. It’s a worry and another big bump in the road this week that I can’t explain here. It’s just life! Thankful we have someone to go to… Hope you have a warm and wonderful Easter with Brian and your girls! xo

  2. Hi Rhonda,
    I’m sorry to hear things haven’t been easy this past week. I’m sending you thoughts and prayers. I hope you have a Happy Easter surrounded by you family.
    Thinking of you.
