nothing in itself is BAD. "God created all
things for His good pleasure." Bunnies and Easter Eggs are not bad in themselves. Just as the Television
and the Computer are not bad.
James says: "Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father above......
also Romans tells us "all things work together for GOOD to them that are the called according to his purpose"
Lately the Lord has really been speaking to my heart about how we shouldn't throw the "Baby out with the
Bathwater" BUT also that we are not to put "new wine in old wineskins", along with the verse
that exhorts that a little leaven spoils the whole.
when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature
are not gods.
But now that you know God-or rather are known by God-how is it that you are turning back to those weak and
miserable principles? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again? YOU ARE OBSERVING SPECIAL DAYS
AND MONTHS AND SEASONS AND YEARS! I fear for you, that somehow I have wasted my efforts on you."

would like to give you a special Easter Present:
It is the most important gift I can give you, and the most important gift that you will ever receive.
You don't have to shake it or tear the wrapping paper. It's better than chocolate bunnys and candy.
And it has no calories. You won't get sticky hands either.
Just click on the present to find out how to become a Christian.
I want to give you is "Salvation". It is a FREE gift
from God. "For by GRACE are you saved through faith,
it is a gift of God not of works lest any man should boast" Ephesians 2:8-9. Here is a link to
"The Four Spiritual Laws" part of Campus Crusade for Christ. This page and site will follow up on your
decision if you become a Christian and they have wonderful resources.
You can click here and read my personal testimony at "Annie's Testimony Page".
the presents in the world won't matter if you spend eternity in
hell. Don't put it off...... you don't know
what tomorrow may bring. Do you know what you would say if you tomorrow you died, you got to heaven
and they asked you "Why should we let you in?" Believe me a long laundry list of all the good things you
did isn't enough. Because nothing of your own merit will get you to heaven.....
the only way is by accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior.
Happy Resurrection Day!
Easter will be on Sunday April 24th, 2011
