Easter quotes 4

Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf of springtime.–Martin Luther

Spring bursts to-day,
For Christ is risen and all the earth’s at play.
— Christina Georgina Rossetti, Easter Carol

Was it not most meet that a woman should first see the risen Saviour? She was first in the transgression; let her be first in the justification. In yon garden she was first to work our woe; let her in that other garden be the first to see Him who works our weal. She takes first the apple of that bitter tree which brings us all our sorrow; let her be the first to see the Mighty Gardener, who has planted a tree which brings forth fruit unto everlasting life.

— Charles Haddon Spurgeon

  1. Hi Barbara.

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I was really excited to hear of some more Christian authors. It was fairly recently that I discoved the ones I’ve read and was ‘running out’. Especially because of our common interest in good Christian books, I was anxious to see your website. I haven’t had the chance yet to look at all of it yet, but am anxious to be able to. It looks like a very inspiring site!

    Oh, and thank you for the suggestion about ‘pages’. I checked it out and found that my site has a similar option called ‘labels’ so I’ve added it to TK’s Korner.

    Thanks,
