He Is Risen!

On Friday we attended a Good Friday service that was so powerful it brought me to tears. Today, on Easter Sunday, we rejoice that our Saviour who endured the horror of the cross for us . . . for me . . . conquered death and rose from the grave. Hallelujah! He is risen, indeed! Like […]
