Spring 2016 (Anticipation) Easter

Welcome I’m back. I haven’t posted since the New Year. Life gets so crazy. So I ‘ll try to catch up in this post.

Every October is fire prevention week. The province passes  out a gazette and on the back of it is a contest for the children in all the schools to participate in. This year a child from our village won. Here is the cake we got done for the celebration in January!!

February 17 the kids had a crazy hat contest at school contest to celebrate the 100th day of school!1 They had so much fun making their hats with their Dad and celebrating at school!!

March 14 was Alex’s 11th birthday. Here are his decorations and gifts.

So now here we are to today and Easter. We just had an Easter drama this weekend for three nights at our church “almost Morning” sorry I don’t have any pictures.

Here is a little devotional I wanted to share.

At the beginning of March, my friend began a countdown. Marked on the calendar in her office were the 20 days left until the first day of spring. One morning when I saw her, she volunteered, “Only 12 more days!” A few days later, “Only 6!” Her enthusiasm started to rub off on me, and I began to keep track as well. “Just 2 more days, Jerrie!” “I know!” she beamed.

  As believers, we have something to look forward to that is even more exciting than the anticipation of budding flowers and lots of sunshine after a long winter. God has made many promises in His Word, and each one has been or will be fulfilled. But the certainty that Christ will return is one of the greatest promises of all. “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God….Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air,” and we’ll be with Him forever (1 Thess. 4:16-17).

  Although no one can know the exact day, we have God’s promise that Jesus will come back (Acts 1:7-11).As we celebrate the spring and coming Easter season, let’s encourage each other in anticipation of that day!!-Cindy Hess Kasper

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18King James Version (KJV)

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 

I am thankful that Jesus Christ died  for our sins and rose again for me.!!

Here are some pictures from today of outside and of my spring decorations inside. It doesn’t look like spring outside but it will come. Easter Blessings !  May you feel His Resurrection Power this Easter season!!
