Happy Easter from Seekerville!
We had so much fun with our bunny story this week... and honestly, the grace of little bunnies learning their lessons of sharing and caring is fun.

The hope of Easter...
Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice. He died a horrific death we cannot even begin to comprehend. But, praise God, the story doesn't end there. The good news of Easter is that Jesus conquered death so that we might live! He has risen! Because of Jesus, we have hope. No matter what life might throw our way, we can cling to His promise to never leave us or forsake us. He is our hope and our salvation.
Easter thoughts by Debby Giusti:
Take up your cross and follow me...
This last year has been tough. So many have lost loved ones or have been sick or lost businesses or jobs and are struggling to make ends meet. Some schools remain closed, some churches, many mom and pop establishments have hung permanent "CLOSED" signs on their doors, and we're still wearing masks and trying to stay healthy and COVID free. During this last year, we've been carrying our crosses and working to help neighbors and family and to spread the love of Christ to those around us. That's what Jesus asks us to do. He wants us to follow in his footsteps, and at no time is that more poignant than Holy Week. We're walking with him through his passion and death, but the Good News is that we eventually get to the Resurrection when every tear will be dried and every heart will be filled with joy.
Dear Friends, I wish you a very prayerful Holy Week and a Happy Easter! May the Lord continue to bless you and your loved ones. Thank you for your support of Seekerville, thank you for your friendship, thank you for your love. I'm looking forward to Sunday when we can all proclaim, "HE IS RISEN!!! ALLELUIA! ALLELUIA! ALLELUIA!"

Music speaks to me. I love Matt Maher's music. It's probably what prompted me to try writing Inspirational Fiction. Several of his songs are particularly appropriate this week, so I wanted to share them with you. I love that he writes songs that deal with issues real people face, and helps us see how faith strengthens us.
This is a song my 4th graders loved to sing. They called it Religion Rock. There is joy in hearing young voices singing out "We lift high the banner of the Cross."
I wish you all a Blessed Easter.
