My prayer on this holy day we call Easter is one of thankfulness. Thankful to be called a child of God; a most unworthy one. You have overcome the powers of sin and death and promises of life and love that never ends. I confess I am among those who took part in your wounds simply by my stubborn, rebellious, and selfish ways. Thank you Eternal Father for forgiving my foolish mistakes, my hurtful words, and shameful deeds. With thankful hearts Jody and I look forward to the after-resurrection days. A-men.
