Easter Is Not A Time…

 xx                            

Easter is not a time for groping through dusty, musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove  life eternal.  It is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope, a day to banish doubts and seek the slopes where the sun is rising, to revel in the faith which transports us out of ourselves and the dead past into the vast and inviting unknown.  ~Author unknown, as quoted in the Lewiston Tribune

 

But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust.  ~Walter Raleigh

On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer.  ~Douglas Horton

The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world.  Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice.  But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice.  ~Henry Knox Sherrill

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.  ~Robert Flatt

Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there.  ~Clarence W. Hall
