Peace be with you!
Be a witness to God’s word! Open your ears and minds to hear God’s message for you. He wants to surprise us because He loves us. We need to be ready to hear His plan for us. He calls each of us to do something special and unique to bring ourselves and others closer to Him. Take time this week to pray and reflect on the joys of Easter and how much Jesus loves us.
