Quotation Saturday ~ Happy NEW Year!


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

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

Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless.
~Charles M. Crowe

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

Celestial spirit that doth roll
The heart's sepulchral stone away,
Be this our resurrection day,
The singing Easter of the soul -
O gentle Master of the Wise,
Teach us to say: "I will arise."
~Richard Le Gallienne

The fasts are done; the Aves said;
The moon has filled her horn
And in the solemn night I watch
Before the Easter morn.
So pure, so still the starry heaven,
So hushed the brooding air,
I could hear the sweep of an angel's wings
If one should earthward fare.
~Edna Dean Proctor, "Easter Morning"

We live and die; Christ died and lived!
~John Stott

See the land, her Easter keeping,
Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices...
~Charles Kingsley

God expects from men something more than at such times, and that it were much to be wished for the credit of their religion as well as the satisfaction of their conscience that their Easter devotions would in some measure come up to their Easter dress.
~Robert South, Sermons

Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.
~Floyd W. Tomkins

Easter is not the time to celebrate the Pagen holiday of bunnies, chocolate, candy and visiting a Church for the first time in the year. It is a time to celebrate life and the eternal blessing bestowed upon man from God! God is love, love God!
~ Joni Zipp

Today my Quotation Saturday is dedicated to Easter. I make no secrets here, I revel in Revelation of all I believe. Tomorrow, I celebrate my New Year and while some think it ‘weird’, others think. That’s right, they think!

Easter is not the time to think of Christ for the first time in the year, it is time to think of life, blossoming forth from the soil. It is where the dead meets the living and dances in your soul! It is a time to believe in something GREATER than your selfish self. A time to sacrifice. It may be the first time in your life you sacrifice a beer for water, ham for fish, beef for broccoli or anything worthy from your inner spirit that might not belong there. Sacrifice.

And if you find, that Jesus stands for everything loving, everything renewing, spiritually divine and prosperous in life and death, then you have found the Glory of God and all He is made of.

Matt. 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Matt. 7: 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

[26] And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

Matt. 10: 27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

Matt. 13: 9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

May you all have a spiritually uplifting day and May God Bless you!
Happy New Year!!!
