Christian Easter and Resurrection Gift Ideas
He is Risen!!!
For most of us, telling and receiving good news is a joyful experience!!!
Imagine the joy of the disciples and the sisters Martha and Mary when they learned that their beloved friend, Jesus, wasn't dead buried and gone. He was risen!!!
As a Christian, telling about and being reminded of Easter and the Resurrection is one of the highlights of my Christian journey each year as well.
Like my birthday, the celebration of Easter and the Resurrection gets better each year for me!!! Between each Easter season, I have experienced varying joys, sorrows, achievements and or disappointments that have made me stronger spiritually. So when Lent rolls around, I reflect on the past year, between Easters, in an effort to improve my spiritual life in anticipation of the Church's celebration of Christ's resurrection.
Then on Easter Sunday, I bask in the beautiful promise Jesus spoke to Martha, which he also speaks to you and me, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die" (John 11:25-26).

We don't just arrive at Easter. The journey from Ash Wednesday through Lent to Easter is an important one if we are to build "spiritual muscles", grow in our Christian journey and truly embrace Easter and the true meaning of the Resurrection.
Some of these meditation books and devotionals have assisted me in my journey from Ash Wednesday through Lent to Easter. I recommend them to you since I know that you and whoever you purchase them for will find them useful as well.

Easter Crosses & Crucifixes (Jewellery/Jewelry) - The Cross is Our Salvation & Protection
"If any of you want to come with me, you must forget yourself, carry your cross, and follow me" (Mark 8:34).
Carrying our cross is sometimes a difficult call as we try to live as true Christians but we are reminded that "our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms" (Ephesians 6:12).
The Cross, the Word (Holy Bible) and the Blood of Jesus Christ are three (3) powerful weapons that we should use daily in our Christian walk.
At different points in our lives, we all bear a cross or two that we would rather not have to bear; sickness, death of a loved one, financial difficulties, problems at work or school or with a business, hurt and betrayal by friends and family etc.
As Christians, we can bring to mind Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross and ask God to help us bear patiently whatever life cross we are carrying.

Celebrate the Resurrection with Song
