Caffeinated Randomness - The True Easter Gift


On this Good Friday, I wanted to share with you an editorial that I clipped from the paper a few years ago.  I hope you enjoy.
The gift of love

Just as with Christmas, Easter, too, becomes lost in the world's ideals of spending money to show love.  True love is a deep heartfelt matter.  It's not about money.

When my children were youngsters, I would extend both my arms straight out to my sides, reaching them as far back as they would go, saying to my children:  "I love you - this  much!"

Then, one Good Friday, I suddenly notices there was Jesus on the cross with both His arms straight out to His sides, saying to me:  "I love you - this much!"

Finally, I saw the true measure of love Jesus had for me - just as much as the measure of love I had for my children. Wow. Easter is a reflection on this overpowering gift of love.

Praying that you all feel the overpowering gift of love of Jesus this weekend.

Come link up with a great bunch of caffeinated ladies today.
