Thought this was the perfect contemplation to end the Easter celebration. Happy Easter to you all!

God Gave
(From "Power of the Cross", An Easter Cantata)

For those looking for purpose and direction, God gave a Wonderful Counselor. For those filled with anxiety and strife, God gave a Prince of Peace. To the lost and helpless, God gave a Good Shepherd. To those needing a voice in their brokenness, God gave an Advocate. And for all those who have no one to identify with in their suffering and pain, God gave a Man of Sorrows. To those seeking answers, the Truth. To the ones ravaged by physical illness and spiritual calamity, God gave the Great Physician. And for all those facing the darkness of death, God Almighty gave the Resurrection and the Life. And as if that weren't enough, to everyone with no spark of divine presence in their lives, He gave Immanuel -- God With Us.
