When my boys were in elementary school "Spring Break" used to be called "Easter Week." What comes to your mind when you hear the words, Spring Break? Sometimes, I think of high school and college students having a crazy and wild time during Spring Break, but that's not always the case. A large number of high school students in our church went to Mexico to build a house for a needy person. Other families enjoy the time off to rejuvenate and spend time together.

Spring can also be a time of renewal. You can do "spring cleaning" in your own heart. Get rid of clutter or bad habits. You can ask God to do it for you. Ask Him to clean up areas to create more space for Him and allow more joy, peace and love to reside in your heart.

The sunrise picture above was taken during this "Spring Break" in Cancun. My husband and I celebrated our 32 years of marriage there. This place has become our retreat with God and each other as we contemplate and meditate on the beauty around us. 

I love to wait for the sun to rise at the beach. Out of a dark sky, a new day begins. It announces itself with glory and rays of hope. The sun receives the command from its Creator to shine and bring light and warmth to the world. We should follow his example and radiate the Son's love and light to the world as well--the love of Jesus!

Here are some pictures of our Spring Break in Cancun as my husband and I thanked the Lord for blessing and protecting our marriage for 32 years!

I bring my travel size Bible and Bible study to enjoy the beauty God created and to hear from Him, the Creator and Author, as I read His precious Word. It nourishes my soul.

Now, when you hear the words, "Happy Easter!" what comes to mind?  When Jesus rose from the dead, let me say that again, He rose from the dead... He offered us eternal life.
John 3:36
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.”

John 3:15
that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 11:25
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies.

The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.

That's what "Happy Easter" is all about... you will live FOREVER! Now, that's a reason to CELEBRATE... HAPPY EASTER!!!

I'm feeling generous today, so here are two YouTube Videos to bless your life!!! :) Receive His love TODAY!

The first is "Revelation Song" and the second is titled, "Resurrection"

John 14:19
Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
