The Easter Story

Here’s a story I think you should know,
It happened a long, long time ago.

So relax your mind and picture this
A rocky road lined with a joyful crowd
Shouting hosanna to the son of God.

He rode on a donkey surrounded by those
Excited to be near the King of the Jews.

They threw their cloaks and branches from trees,
They screamed ‘til their voices were merely squeaks.
They entered Jerusalem with a triumphant shout
Hosanna, blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!

Now picture this a few days later, another procession
But the mood’s now somber as they followed the Savior
To a place called Golgotha

They saw Him nailed to a wooden cross
Between two thieves one who mocked and scoffed,
You saved others now save yourself.

On that wooden cross on Golgotha’s hill,
My Lord died for your sins and mine.

But hey now, let’s not be sad
Three days later He defeated death
An empty tomb stands witness to this

Two angels stood guard at the tomb on that day
And said, “Jesus of Nazareth is not here, He’s risen today!”

Not long after that the saga continued,
Jesus ascended to heaven where He sits at the right of God’s throne

But wait a minute now, the story hasn’t ended
Jesus is in heaven now but He’s coming back again
The question is, are you ready for the big event?

Happy Easter!

  1. Good morning, how are you?

    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys travelling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately, it is impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are very small countries with very few population, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

    For all this, I would ask you one small favour:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Bahamas? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Bahamas in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Avenida Juan de la Cierva, 44
    28903 Getafe (Madrid)
    Spain

    If you wish, you can visit my blog www.cartasenmibuzon.blogspot.com where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

    Finally, I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez
