1 Peter 1:3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation.
It’s time to celebrate what the Lord has done.
For more guidance on the Easter message I point you to these articles.
Dear Risen Savior, How wonderful that death could not hold You! Forgive us for taking Your sacrifice lightly and cause us to be changed by Your death and resurrection. Help us to rest secure knowing that our chains are gone, and we’ve been set free. Keep Your words of truth planted firm within us. And when the enemy hisses his lies, help us to know Your voice. Remind us to trust You knowing Your purposes and plans will not fail. Shine Your light in us, through us and over us. Today on resurrection Sunday, we rejoice in Your glorious and triumphant victory. Your victory is our victory. May we reflect Your peace and hope to a world who desperately needs You. Amen.

Happy Easter Debbie, Praise the Lord for another 40 days of your Lenten Series. You are amazing and both of us (Clark & I) read it every morning.
Hopefully we will be able to come back to Church in person someday. We have not missed a single Sunday’s service (U-Tube) since last March. Unfortunately we are both in the very highest risk group so will remain at home.
Thanks and many blessings for sharing your love of Christ with us again this year. We look forward to your Wednesday Blogs.
Friends in Christ and Happy Easter, Toni Hulce
Thank you dear Toni. Happy Easter. Thanks for your faithful support.

Happy Easter, Debbie! Thank you for guiding me through Lent again this year. I looked forward each day to God’s word speaking to me through your dedication and insight. Because I journal, I noticed that many of the scriptures that you chose were the same as a year ago. Of course they are timeless and true ….worth reviewing and important. And Next year could you add some new scriptures ? Your reflections each day were exactly the right length, by the way.
Debbie, you have helped me more than you know! Thank you for sharing your personal life in Christ with me and so many others. God’s word is a treasure and so are you.💕
Thanks Anne. You’ve been such a faithful supporter. I try to add new scriptures. But wrestle with some of my favorites because they are the bedrock for me and from that standpoint, important for new people. But I do appreciate your participation and will take to heart your desire for fresh content. Happy Easter.
HAPPY EASTER!! Thank you so much for your Lenten series!! I so look forward to your writing every day! I do not have any suggestions for changing it. Just keep sharing the wonderful gift God has blessed you with!
Your Good Friday message was so beautiful that I had to share it. I forwarded it on to all our family members.
Today we celebrate…for Christ has Risen!
Thank you Paula. Happy Easter to you.

Happy Easter Debbie. Thank you again for your wonderful Lenten devotions.
They inspire, educate, and very often make me think. This has been a very
trying and tiring period and your insights have encouraged and renewed my hope. We have a living, loving Heavenly Father.
Amen Liz. Yay. Happy Easter.
Thank you again Debbie! My favorite verse from yesterday was Philippians 1:6. Hope you and yours have a happy Easter!
Happy Easter Gail 🌸 thank you
Alverta Smith (Birdie) says
Thank you Deb for a very inspirational Lenten Series. I’m a newbie and didn’t know what to expect. I was truly pleased and grateful to be a part of the journey.
I feel I am a “good” Christian but not sure what the criteria for that term actually is. I’m a baptized and confirmed Lutheran and need a little push sometimes to keep me pointed in the right direction. This past year has definitely been a challenge. I should be able to be as faithful without setting foot in the church but somehow even though we have the virtual services and have used them (though not as often as we should and could have) somehow it was lacking the feeling I have when I’m inside the church, hearing the music live, and being with people.
All that being said, I so looked forward to your daily words. I kept a journal and I and saved the daily reflections so I can visit them anytime. I also signed up for your weekly blogs.
You were my guiding light and I am so appreciative of your gifts and faithfulness. I will continue to pray for you and your family as I try to become an even better (not just good) Christian thanks to you. God Bless!
Birdie, Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself a bit. I’m delighted this devotional ministered to you during this especially difficult time. EMBRACE His Grace. We all fall short. None of us is “good enough”. Thank goodness for Easter. Blessings to you! Debbie
I had never done a Bible study during Lent before so I didn’t know what to expect but I was so pleased. You made it easy and yet fulfilling. I knew I could take a short amount of time to read and then reflect and that made it feel doable instead of overwhelming.
One of the main things I feel I learned or relearned was recognizing the voice of my Heavenly Father. So many times when something was stirring inside me I would calm myself and ask…… Lord is that you, and what should I do about it. MANY times I felt the Lord clearly letting me know what to do. So instead of getting riled up and emotional over whatever was stirring I realized it was the Holy Spirit warning me to let it go or leave it alone. Don’t get involved in that argument, don’t let that “thing” steal my peace, don’t allow my thoughts to go there, and so much more.
Thank you for all your hard work in preparing and putting this together. I am grateful.
Wow… thank you Melinda for taking the time to share your experience. It blesses me knowing that! May what you learned sustain you. Amen!

I did post my final check in and just want to make sure you received it. Somehow when I tried to finalize the post something happened. Just checking back.
Hello Birdie… I did see your beautiful check in. Thank you. Here was my response…. Birdie, Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself a bit. I’m delighted this devotional ministered to you during this especially difficult time. EMBRACE His Grace. We all fall short. None of us is “good enough”. Thank goodness for Easter. Blessings to you!
