- Our God is an Awesome God. We can be close
to Him when we accept the gift of His Son. Jesus suffered, died
and was separated from Father God because of our sins. Three
days after His terrible death on the cross, Jesus was raised
from the dead. This is the day we celebrate on Easter. He is
with His Father in heaven. Jesus sends His Holy Spirit to live
in our hearts when we ask Him to. We need to tell Jesus we love

Gramma's Critters have one person on their
minds today. Jesus! It is a very special day. It is Easter! Jesus

There is nothing more important than knowing
we belong to God. Because of Jesus we can.
If you already have Jesus in your heart, and
know you are God's child, it is a day to be thankful. If you
have never asked Jesus into your heart, pray and ask God to speak
to your heart about becoming His child. Tell Him you want to
know Him. Ask your parents, church school teachers or pastors
to help you know Jesus as your Savior. Let them explain how Jesus
needs to be in the center of your life and why you need to let
Him your boss! God bless you!

things. You call this sin. I ask You to fill my empty heart with
Jesus. I believe that Jesus is Your Son. He was punished for
my sins. He died for me on the cross because He loves me. He
lives again. Please forgive the bad things I have done. Thank
you for sending Your Holy Spirit to live inside of me. Help me
to be like Jesus. Thank you God, for your wonderful plan. I am
Your child! Jesus is my Lord and my very best Friend!
