Because He Lives!


I did not make a lot of Easter cards this year, but could not resist using this image!   I combined the Easter frame and the verse.  This is the last couple of lines from the chorus of the wonderful song 'Because He Lives"!!

     Because He lives I can face tomorrow.
     Because He lives all fear is gone.
     Because I know He holds the future
     And life is worth the living just because He lives!

It is my prayer that you know Jesus!  It is only through the risen, living Lord that we have hope in this life and the next!!
