Easter Monday

So I sat down to write this evening, and suddenly, my computer started spitting out pop-up after pop-up of imminent threats of takeover from malicious viral bugs. And since Bill had gone to bed early because he had to drive Andy back to school last night and didn't get home until after midnight, I didn't want to wake him up to launch a counterattack against this Trojan virus that was about to take out my computer, my children and all things precious to me in my house. So I woke him up. He jumped out of bed, karate-chopped the virus, buried the Trojan in the backyard, and now I'm safely back at the computer.

Now before we move back to another Annie update later this week, I just have to say one more time: Jesus is alive! He died for our sin on Good Friday, rose from the dead on Easter Sunday, and lives today. And as our pastor reminded us yesterday, each of us need to be born again--even moral, good, religious people. Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again." John 3:3

We're all born sinners. But being born again is admitting to God that you are a sinner, believing that Jesus died on the cross to pay for the punishment for your sin you deserve, and committing your life to follow Him. Simple--and you can do it right now.


Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10

Right move, waking Bill.

And...what a ministry you have, Jean. Yep, even we "upright", "faithful" believers need to pull that log out and look to the cross. DAily.
