Wondrous works

And radiant light

Is Jesus full of

Power and might

He died for all

That we may be free

The sacrificial lamb

Nailed to the tree

But in God’s power

And in His might

He was raised from death

To glorious life


By M.S.Lowndes



Jesus Christ crucified

His blood shed for all

The sacrificial Lamb of God

Arose as Lord of Lords

And we can all rejoice today

In what our Lord has done

No sacrifice can be compared

To that of God’s dear Son

By M.S.Lowndes



The most wonderful things

That Easter time brings

Is knowing that our Lord

Was crucified for all

The giving of His life

The most holy sacrifice

And He did it just for us

Out of His undying love

Then on the third day

He rose from the grave

And lives forever more

As our Saviour and Lord

By M.S.Lowndes



Lord you have given

Each of your children

A hope and a destiny


You gave us life

The day you died

And set our spirit’s free


With each new day

That comes along

We live to honor Thee

By M.S.Lowndes


Easter Sunday

This is the day the doves returned,The greatest day on earth,The day the stone was overturned,The sign of man's rebirth.This is the day He left the tomb,The day the the angels hailed,This is the day the Lilies bloomed,The day to lift the veil.

This is the day that Mary's tears, Upon her cheek were dried,The day the angels quelled her fears,By singing He's alive! This is the day that Christ was seen,Walking on the road,

In the flesh - no, not a dream,In a white and holy robe.This is the day He spoke aloud,Hear, see, touch - He's real,The day He rose up in the clouds,God's truth to man revealed.

Third Part of the Easter Trilogy written by Virginia (Ginny) Ellis


Easter was one of the favorite holiday's of Tiff and Dustin when they were younger. We always had alot of fun.
Ask Dustin about the time the Easter Bunny
 came to Brookshire, Tx.

Dustin, The  Easter Bunny is on his way

I know you thought was your mom until that day

What a surprise, when the bunny left a trail

The eggs all dyed and moving every where.

And your mom just standing there.

Your face a glow and such a puzzle

A smile on your face saying

YES! there is a Easter Bunny after all.

Love, Mother




Dear Mr. Easter Bunny,

I just had to write today...

To see if you stop in Heaven...

As you hop along your way?


You see...a part of me is up there...

That I miss with all my heart...

You son lost his life...

That tore our lives apart.


So, I wanted to know if you go there???

And if I could ask a favor of you?

Can you take him a basket to heaven?

Filled with colored eggs and bunnies too?


And could you please add a green egg for me?

They say green means new life and rest,

For my son is now resting in heaven...

No more pain and no more tests.


And could you also add an orange egg for me?

Orange for the color of a candles flame,

For m yson little light will always shine...

Although our lives will never be the same.


And could you add an egg so blue?

For blue is the color of a cloudless sky,

And when I see the geese flying over me...

I know its a sign...from him way up high.


And we can’t forget a yellow egg too...

For yellow is the color of the rising sun,

And my son love will shine down on me...

For all my days and nights to come.


And we also need a rainbow colored egg...

For the rainbow way up high in the sky,

For Mom says he will always live within me...

And his spirit will never die.


And last but not least a red egg if you could?

For we all know red means the color of love,

And I love my son oh so much...

Please send my love to him above.


Thank you Mr Easter Bunny...

I really appreciate your time today...

And I will say a prayer for you too...

As you hop to Heaven for me on Easter day.


When you take his basket up to the Heavens...

Can you please whisper in his ear?

And wish him the happiest Easter From me...

For I miss him more with each passing year.

Easter Reflections

With OUR EYES we see
The beauty of Easter
as the earth awakens once more...

With OUR EARS we hear
The birds sing sweetly
to tell us Spring again is here...

With OUR HANDS we pick
the golden daffodils
and the fragrant hyacinths...

But only with OUR HEARTS
can we feel the MIRACLE of GOD'S LOVE
which redeems all men...

And only with OUR SOUL
can we make our 'pilgrimage to God'
and inherit His Easter Gift of ETERNAL LIFE.

Helen Steiner Rice


Easter is the gift...:

Easter is the gift of HOPE

Easter is the gift of PEACE

Easter is the gift of LOVE

Let us rejoice in Him,

Who gives them all.


May God bless you at Easter,

And keep you all year through.

May God give you all the faith it takes,

To make your dreams come true.

May His love and wisdom always help,

To guide you on your way.

May His light shine down upon you now,

To bless your Easter Day.



The Easter feeling does not end.
It signals a new beginning,
Of nature, spring, and brand new life,
And friendship, peace, and giving.
The spirit of Easter is all about
Hope, love, and joyful living.

Flowers blooming,

reaching out to touch

the morning sun, bring

promises of hope and joy

meant for everyone

Behold! I am with you and will keep you wherever you go - genesis 28:15

The Lord has promised to prepare
A place in heaven above—
A home where we will always be
With Him and those we love.  —Sper

Because Christ lives, death is not tragedy but triumph.
