I hope that you had a wonderful Easter. It was so good to be able to celebrate Easter in our churches. Thankful that our Lord Jesus arose and lives today. That will never change. Praise God.
Thought for today: Be a reflection of what you’d like to see in others. If you want love, give love. If you want honesty, give honesty. If you want respect, give respect. You get in return, what you give. (Matt Kennon)
