My mother-in-law's well worn Bible.
"Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed.
When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along
with the criminals - one on his right, the other on his left.
'Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.'"
Luke 23:32-34 NIV
"When he (Jesus) had led them (the disciples) out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up
his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was
taken up into heaven." Luke 24:50-51 NIV
I wish each of you a blessed Easter and pray you will take time to
think about the true events of that first Good Friday and Easter when Jesus
was crucified for our sins, he was buried, and on the third day he rose
again from the grave of death to give us victory. He appeared to the dsiciples
several times before he ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of God.
"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 3:16 NIV
May God richly bless you and yours,

I'll be back next week after our busy weekend with our Easter drama.
