While reading recently I came across this wonderful quote, and thought it was worthy of sharing today, as we remember the joy of that first Easter:
There was a gift for each of us left under the tree of life two thousand years ago by the one whose birthday we now celebrate. The gift was withheld from no one. Some have left their packages unclaimed. Some have accepted the gift and carried it around, but have failed to remove the wrappings and look inside to discover the hidden splendour. The packages are all alike: In each is a scroll on which is written, “All that the Father hath is thine.” Take and live!
