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???

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”

William Arthur Ward

The three wise men brought presents to the king of kings: Jesus Christ. They expressed their gratitude. How do we express our gratitude on Christmas? Jesus Christ is the real present to the world. How do we express our gratitude to him today on his birthday? What do we give to HIM?

I wish you all a “Merry Christmas” with the christmas song: The reason why: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpRPjriOogc

The most important birthday ever

colouryourdream - heart for a special person

Dear blog readers,

thanks a lot for reading my blog and for your encouraging comments!

Wishing you a blessed Christmas!

For me it is very special time of the year – cause the person who I love most has birthday: Jesus Christ!

He is the one who gives my life meaning and fulfillment.

Today many thoughts were crossing my mind:

God is the one who knows the beginning and the end of your life – no one else. And he has everything in his hand. He knows what’s best for us and for others – even if we don’t understand everything.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55,8+9).

Yesterday I had my last working day (or let’s say night – cause I worked during the night) in the year 2012.

And I planned to fly for the day to see someone close to me in the hospital.
But Gods thoughts are higher than our ways.

Today I got the sad news that she went already to the place where there will be “no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelations 21,4). For me sad news but for her its the best place to be – and in this way I am also happy!

But we are still living here on this earth and there is a lot of pain and tears involved.

It’s good to know that God “will wipe every tear from their eyes…..”- one day.

Today I listened to a podcast where it was mentioned that every person has 4 questions:

– origin: where do I come from?
– meaning: what gives my life meaning?
– morality: how do I differentiate between good and evil
destiny: what happens to a human being when he/she dies?

Many religions have different answers, but there is one unique answer which I believe in: it’s the uniqueness of Christ’s forgiveness.

In John Chapter 3 its says how the love of Christ is expressed: it’s unconditional love, it’s relational and eternal.

This one person who’s birthday we celebrate in a few days is the redeemer of the world. He came to pay the prize so that you and I can live! How amazing!

There exists many stories of people who lived a life of pleasure, but when they faced the last hours in their life they suddenly realized: their life was so empty, it had no meaning at all.

I was very sad today and I cried a lot because of the loss and also because I couln’t be there on time. But what made me confident was: I know that she just didn’t “know” abstractly that Jesus Christ exists, but that she “knew” Christ in a personal way.

She was 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 8,38)

I know that not everybody who reads this post will agree on it. But it was on my heart to write it and because I believe that Jesus Christ is the true way to life and I wanted to share it with you. It’s a free choice what we believe in.

Would love to hear “your story” – your experiences, your hopes, your fears, your dreams, your questions, your belief…..

I wish you a blessed Christmas and hopefully I will see you next year: 2013!

God’s blessing…..

… in English: for my english speaking friends:

The Lord bless you, and keep you:
The Lord make his face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

… in German (Deutsch= my mother tongue):

Der Herr segne dich und behüte dich.
Der Herr lasse sein Angesicht leuchten über dir und sei dir gnädig.
Der Herr erhebe sein Angesicht auf dich und schenke dir Frieden.
…in French:

Que le Seigneur te bénisse et te garde.
Que le Seigneur fasse rayonner sur toi son regard et t’accorde sa grâce.
Que le Seigneur porte sur toi son regard et te donne la paix.
