    To all our Gators and Friends who celebrate and enjoy this most wonderful day in the Spring,
    Happy Easter!

    Easter is a time to stop and consider our many Blessings here on Earth.

    Spring comes.
    Sun shines. :)
    Ground thaws.
    Buds bloom.

    Hope your spirit is lifted with each new sign of life this Easter!

    Easter Sunday Morning. The Resurrection of Our Lord.

    The Introit:
    He is risen, hallelujah: why seek ye the living among the dead? Hallelujah. Remember how He spake onto you, Halleulujah: the Son of Man must be crucified, and the third day rise again. Hallelujah, Hallelejah. Psalm: Thou hast crowned Him with Glory and Honor: Thou madest Him to have dominion over the works of Thy hands.

    The Gloria Patri:
    Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost: as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

    The Prophet:
    Isaiah 25: 6-9.

    The Epistle:
    1 Peter 1: 3-9.

    The Holy Gospel:
    John 20: 1-18.

    Easter Sunday Evening. "On the Road to Emmaus."
    Luke 24: 13-35.

    ++++++++++


    The Propers and and Scriptures were taken from The Lutheran Service Book and Hymnal of 1958. I do have a couple of others from later times but the 1958 is probably my favorite. It was the last one to use the KJV Bible and English in the various Services. I love it. :)

    Just a heads up. PUBLIX is closed on Easter Sunday so if you need some food better get it today.
    They close 3 days a year for their employee families.

    Thanksgiving.
    Christmas.
    Easter.
    God bless Publix. . :)

    The Gospel of Jesus Christ.....
    How that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third
    day according to the scriptures. I Corinthians 15:3,4
    But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other
    GOSPEL unto you than that which we have preached
    unto you, let him be accursed. Galatians I:8
