insights from a daughter of the King, teacher, farmer's wife, and Mommy

4.18.2014

from passover to communion

we piled around the table
to hear the story
the Passover
the bitter herbs for slavery
the lamb for sacrifice
their faces nodded
their ears listened
these lives we have been allowed to borrow from Him
this story of Easter that we get to share
thousands of years ago
Jesus sat around with his best friends and family
knowing that the days ahead were going to be hard and ugly
filled with betrayal and sorrow and pain
but it wasn't going to be the end
there was hope at the end of the darkness
the next day he was going to face a hardship we can't begin to understand
and through this death we are allowed Communion
eternal communion with a living Savior
because hardship, betrayal, sorrow, pain, not even death
would stop our Lord from being our sacrifice
even though we didn't deserve it and we could never earn it
it was a sacrifice only He could provide
Thank You, Lord


from our family 
may you and yours have a truly blessed Easter!!

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
