And when they came to the place which is called The Skull [Latin: Calvary; Hebrew: Golgotha], there they crucified Him, and [along with] the criminals, one on the right and one on the left. And Jesus prayed, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. And they divided His garments and distributed them by casting lots for them...

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, [the women] went to the tomb, taking the spices which they had made ready. And they found the stone rolled back from the tomb, but when they went inside, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus... He is not here, but has risen! Remember how He told you while He was still in Galilee. ~ Luke 23:33-34; Luke 24:1-3, 6(AMP)

Lead Me to Calvary

King of my life I crown You now;
Yours shall the glory be.
Lest I forget Your thorncrowned brow,
Lead me to Calvary.


Lest I forget Gethsemane,
Lest I forget Your agony,
Lest I forget Your love for me,
Lead me to Calvary.

High on the cross I see You there,
Anguish across Your face.
How great the pain and grief You bear!
How great the price of grace!

Jesus, I bow and take the cross
Gladly You bore for me.
Daily, my Lord, in gain or loss,
Lead me to Calvary.

Happy Easter everyone! I decided I needed to have an Easter spotlight on my blog, because I feel like it just came and went this year and I didn't even give it a lot of consideration, yet it's one of the most important holidays. It's funny how we make such a big deal out of Christmas, and yet Easter can go by without a passing glance. I think this must be the result of consumerism and its effects on religious holidays. This isn't new information, but the fact that I could have easily missed Easter makes me realize the importance of having one's own traditions or traditions within your family that can become symbolic and help you to refocus during busy holiday times. I think we should even do more within our churches to commemorate, for this day is the foundation of what the church is built on. We also need to teach our children how to celebrate the important things in our lives.
