Happy Easter!

I'll be taking a blog break this weekend as I prepare for having family and friends over for Easter dinner.  So I send out Easter greetings to my friends here on Coffee Tea Books & Me.

I mentioned to a friend this week how I do not count numbers when it comes to blogging.  I refuse to look at them.  Of course, I see the numbers for the Facebook page whenever I log in and they are like a roller coaster, going up and down and up and down.  I'm pretty sure people click on unlike once they notice this is undoubtedly a Christian blog at its' base and not only about books and such.

So I take the time right now to thank friends who stay, for there is no encouragement to me without the risen Christ and Easter is all about the Resurrection.  I find it particularly interesting this year as Passover and Easter are overlapping... just as they did 2000 years ago during Holy Week and that first Resurrection sunrise.

The above image has been one I have come back to over and over this past week.  It reminds me of the Resurrection and how Jesus saves us out of the destruction and rubble of our lives.  Look at that cross, even after going through the fire!

Happy Easter, my friends.

The cross and altar still stand. God is good. I am one who loves books and Christian content. Both bring me joy.
