Abundantly Free!

Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, his blood poured out on the alter of the Cross, we're free people ... free of penalties and punishments chalked up by all our misdeeds. And not just barely free, either.

Abundantly free! (Eph. 1, from The Message)

Happy Easter to my friends and family!

Such a cute picture! The Easter bonnets are a bit different, but those classic black patent leather shoes. And I remember if you were really cool, you had white ones! Those were the days.

Have a blessed Easter!
