He is Risen!

The resurrection of Christ is where I put all of my hope.  Not in my husband or health or kids or citizenship or wealth--but in Jesus Christ who rose from the dead.  Without that truth, life would be hopeless and senseless.

"For us, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!"--Romans 5:10

God gave us a great celebration here at the Harbor today!  We are blessed to celebrate Jesus' victory over death with the military in Okinawa, Japan.  They are precious people.

  1. Looks like a great day! I have seen those resurection eggs. But, when I saw them, I didn't have grand kids. Now that I do, they seem to be nowhere around. I plan to get a set whenever I find one. Or - could one be made? What is in each egg?

    1. Patty, You can learn more about them and buy them at They are a wonderful tool and tradition we use every year! Jen

  2. We used the resurrection eggs, too! I had to modify some of them for the kids to understand them, but it went over great. It took a lot longer with translation, but they loved them here, too.
