When I was a student at Moore’s Elementary school, I had a teacher named Miss Ross. A petite woman, she was stern and had an iron hand. There were several things that were mandatory assignments. You had to learn them or face Miss Ross! Everyone including me dreaded looking her in the eyes or feeling her black belt on your behind. In Mississippi in the early 1960’s, corporal punishment (as we called it) and religious teachings were still permitted in the classrooms. If you were disciplined by Miss Ross, you couldn’t turn her in to your parents because in those days teachers ruled – unanimously; no questions asked! My parents felt that if I was punished, it was justified! Go figure! One of Miss Ross’ mandatory recitations before the entire class was King David’s Twenty – Third Psalms. You had to say it over and over again until you got it right. Today, I thank you Miss Ross because Psalms 23, “The Lord is my Shepherd” has helped, guided, and uplifted me in so many ways! Miss Ross put those powerful words in my head; I put them in my heart. Happy Sunday! Be blessed!

Easter Sunday is here! The parade of pastel color suits, Easter baskets, the Easter Bunny, Easter eggs, and jellybeans are everywhere! Dressed to the hilts, everyone is decked out for Easter church service and programs. But today is much more than that. It is Resurrection Sunday. It is the day that we celebrate Jesus Christ rising from the dead; the day that he offered his life for the forgiveness of our sins; the day that gives us the gift of eternal life. The resurrection of Jesus is noted in many bible verses including Luke 24:2-3; 1 Corinthians 15:12-19; John 11:25-26; Peter 1:3-4; Acts 24: 16,21; Acts 4:33; and Matthew 27: 52-54. Jesus paid the price for our sins. As John 3:16 tells us, “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.” What a mighty God we serve! His grace, love, mercy, compassion – are far reaching. Today and everyday, we should praise him in worship; in song; in all things! Our Blessed Savior; He’s worthy to be praised!
