Easter

Der Herr ist auferstanden – Er ist wahrhaftig auferstanden! (German)

Christ has risen! Truly he has risen! (English)

What are the words above in your language? Would be lovely if you could post them under this post!

I baked this Easter lamb for the first time for Easter. My family sent me the baking dish lately for my birthday – timely for Easter.

This baked cake in the form of a lamb is a German tradtion. Jesus Christ is the „Lamb of God“ who died for our sins, so that we might

live. The lamb symbolizes gentleness of character, and the patience under suffering. The Lamb is a symbol of Jesus Christ, and

signifies purity, meekness, and sacrifice.

In the bible in John 1:29 we can read: “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, „Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.“

 

You probably know the famous song: Hallelujah!

A friend sent this link to me – not with the original words, but with the Easter story! My friend recommended:

Put your earphones on, close your eyes and listen to this song.

I listened to it already many times and it touches my heart.

I wonder what you think of Easter and what it means to you?

 

??? What are these words in your native language???: Christ has risen! Truly he has risten!

And I would love to hear what Easter means to you???

Forgiveness

Who doesn’t want to have great relationships? A few days ago I read something that I believe is very true.

It is the key to great relationships.

 

“Forgiveness involves extending love and mercy to someone who has wronged you or hurt you. It clears the way to

reconciliation and restoration of a relationship. When we realise how much God has forgiven us and how great is

his mercy, we can more easily forgive those who hurt us and extend mercy to them. This is the key to great relationships.”

 

God’s mercy is new every morning and we can make a fresh, new start every single day. I think we can make a conscious decision,

not to hold a grudge against the other person but to forgive and make a new start – over and over again. I guess it is our own pride or hurt

if we don’t do it – or what do you think?

How can you resolve conflict in a positive way?

Colouryourdream Purpose Goal Dream Flower

Do you know any person, who never has a conflict to resolve or a disagreement?

I think conflict and disagreement belong to our lives, but the question is: how do we resolve conflict? Do we resolve it in a negative or positive way?
How can we handle emotionally-charged situations and defuse them before they escalate?
It is common that people have different opinions, expectations and needs. But this is not a bad thing. It is possible to resolve a conflict in a healthy and constructive way.
When you feel threatened or punished by a conflict, this can create negative feelings.
But when a conflict isn’t perceived as “threatening or punishing, it fosters freedom, creativity, and safety in relationships.”
One skill of emotional intelligence is the ability to manage conflicts in a “positive, trust-building way.”
How can you resolve a conflict in a trust-building way?

– Choose your arguments: Think first – is it worth arguing about it or not? If you want to resolve the conflict in a positive way, you need time and energy for your arguments

– Stay focused in the present: don’t hold on to old hurts and resentments. Recognize the reality of the current situation and view it as a “new opportunity for resolving old feelings about conflicts.”

– end conflicts that cannot be resolved: you need two people to “keep an argument going. You can choose to disengage from a conflict, even if you still disagree.”

– Forgive: people have hurt you in the past – but this is the past If you want to resolve conflict, you need to “give up the urge to punish or seek revenge”

??? How do you resolve conflict??? I would be interested in knowing how you deal with conflict and what you experienced with it???
