“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’” Mark 16: 6-7
Oh how I love that verse. . . especially, "and Peter" . . . make sure you tell Peter. . . Peter, the one who betrayed Jesus THREE times after he promised Jesus he wouldn't. . .
In this verse, there is not only the promise of the truth of the Word, but also the promise of grace. . .
"The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” Matthew 28:5-7
I am so thankful for a Savior who loves me, died for me, speaks truth and exudes grace.
This beautiful Easter morning I want to share with you a fabulous bread that could act as breakfast or dessert! This recipe is from Julie Baker of Baker's Dozen Donuts! I made the Pistachio Bread last week, took it to school, and it was gone by lunch time! :-) Needless to say, it is good, almost "addicting" good. . . you can't just have one piece!
(you can't tell by the picture but it is green. . . perfect for St Patrick's Day next year!)
Enjoy and have a blessed Easter!Pistachio Bread
