Have A Blessed Easter To All!

John 3:16

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.

May the miracle of Easter brings forth new beginnings, healing, peace and joy.   Wishing everyone a wonderful, blessed Easter from our family to yours.   ❤

Have a great day! ❤
