Happy Easter and Passover to Friends and Family

Today, instead of concentrating on the minutiae of the world, we focus on the promise of life and the potential for good that resides in each of us. Easter and Passover are seasons of renewal, when we can shed the sins of our past and be renewed into our full power as the good and holy creations of a loving God.

Exodus 19:3-6 says:

Moses went up to the mountain to God. Then the LORD called to him and said, "Thus shall you say to the house of Jacob; tell the Israelites: You have seen how I treated the Egyptians and how I bore you up on eagle wings and brought you here to myself. Therefore, if you hearken to my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my special possession, dearer to me than all other people, though all the earth is mine. You shall be to me a kingdom of priests, a holy nation!"

Luke 24:36-41, 46-49:

While they were still speaking about this, He stood in their midst and said to them, "Peace be with you." But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a ghost. Then He said to them, "Why are you troubled? And why do questions arise in your hearts? Look at my hands and feet, that it is I myself. Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you can see I have." ...

And He said to them, "Thus it is written that the Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance, for the forgivenes of sins, would be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning with Jerusalem. You are the witnesses of these things. And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you, but stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high."

Have a happy and blessed Easter and/or Passover. I'll be back later with pictures of the Little Admiral and the entire family.
