I stand amazed.

Easter is about the resurrection, but we can't have the resurrection without the cross.

The resurrection is our hope, our victory.

But, the cross shows love ... unimaginable love ... love that, at times, is difficult to comprehend.

Thinking of handing one of my daughters over  to be tortured for anyone that I deeply love is an impossibility for me. I honestly can say that I could not give their life for anyone else's.

The love God has for us is really indescribable. It's amazing. And, it never ends.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
 -Romans 8:35-39

I want to celebrate in the resurrection but never forget the cross and what Jesus had to go through for me.
