Pine Tree Crosses

Did you know that God is amazing in letting us know that he is the almighty God? He has a way of making our minds think of Him as we should. How can one not think that God did not create the Heavens and the Earth. When you look at a pine tree a couple weeks before Easter, you will know that God is powerful, omnipresent, loving, compassionate, etc. He did create the Heavens and the Earth. Take a look at your pine trees a couple weeks before Easter and you will see a tiny cross budding at the tip of each branch. That is amazing to me!
Since Easter is early this year it makes you wonder if this is timing to Easter being in April or will it actually happen in March too. Keep your eye out for God's way of telling you about Him in our nature. Take time to see the tips of the trees and Thank God that He died on the cross for all of us. What would we be without our Heavenly Father? Nothing!

Another thing that I have noticed is the Easter lily. Did you ever look at the inside of the lily? Why is that our Easter flower? Take a look at the inside of the lily. There is a heart in there (the stigma). The bright gold is the anther attached by a stem called the filament. Anyway, back to the heart. That is also another way that God shows he loves us! PRAISE HIM, PRAISE HIM!!!
FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONE AND ONLY SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE--JOHN 3:16
FOR GOD DID NOT SEND HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD, BUT TO SAVE THE WORLD THROUGH HIM--JOHN 3:17
