    This spiritual flow is a nice change of pace
    for we must realize that it's because of God we are still in the race.
    In a few days we celebrate his total victory on the cross
    for without his shedding of blood we would be lost
    don't mean to offend anyone who is not of this belief
    but when he's been so good to us we just have to release
    all glory to our God, for he has done great things
    he is the reason I have a new song to sing
    It is well with my soul
    for he has made me whole
    Without him I would not be
    I once was blind but now I see
    Baptized in his grace and in his love
    I shall forever praise the name of the Lord above....


    Again we don't mean to offend anyone, who may be of another faith.

    MaddRapper!!!!

    Unfortunately I cannot begin to put into perspective all that Easter is to me....When I think about the Savior's coming to this earth in the likeness of sinful flesh to die in order that I may be reconciled to the Father...No I cannot begin to tell it all. When I think of how he endured the cross despising the shame, just for me...I can't begin to tell it all. When I think about his shed blood cleasing my soul from unrigtheousness, I can't begin to tell it all...What does Easter mean to me, from the heart? It means new life....It means a second chance, it means restoration and reconciliation...It means adoption and appointment....It means eternal joy and everlasting peace....trust me you don't want me to begin to tell all what his dying and resurrection means to me......
