Easter represents a time of renewal

Today represents what many call Christianity's most holy day. It's a time for reflecting on God's wonderful promise.

Amid the flurry of new Easter dresses and suits, Easter egg hunts and family dinners, it's appropriate to pause in celebration of things for which we can be thankful.

Health, life, and stable families are just a few of the blessings we enjoy.

There's no greater example of renewal than the resurrection of the Savior. In it, we find the core of the Christian faith, and we see the fulfillment of God's promise to man.

There are many lessons that can be learned from the Easter story, but chief among them must be that through faith man can be saved. That's a story of hope that can not be equaled.

This Easter we have families who are hurting with the painful reminder that life is a precious commodity. Easter's hope is offered to those families, too.

That hope, we believe at its most basic level, is that faith perseveres.

Easter presents us a celebration of hope, and can undergird our spirit to see us through all that lies before.

Happy Easter. Pike County.
