You Took My Life And Made It Beautiful...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter/Resurrection Day.

Soo...Today's blog title is significant [to me] in two ways:


First, it's a line from the theme song to a fantastic movie I saw over the weekend. The Young Victoria. I'm such a sap for history, historical dramas and romance, so I absolutely loved the film. If your curious to know more about the film you can view the trailer here. The movie was delightful to watch, and it is has further urged me to do more research on Victoria and her Prince Albert myself. Any film that makes me want to dig into history and do some reading gets my vote. 


Secondly, in retrospect of yesterday [Easter] and the significance the day holds, I think the line [see blog title]  perfectly sums what Jesus Christ did for you and I.  I was definately taken in by the words the Pastor spoke in Church yesterday morning. That while Jesus Christ died for my sins, so we also will die. It's what happens to us mortals, naturally. His [Jesus] death wasn't the clincher as to the reason I/we have hope, faith, forgiveness and a home waiting for us in Heaven. It's not the reason we "celebrate" Easter.  It it because He defeated death and rose again! Because he was risen from the dead, our faith is not futile. He was seen by witnesses and changed lives and is still changing lives today. He took my life and made it beautiful...he saved me from my sins and saved me to a cause. To a life of purpose, struggle, pain, joy, learning, loss and gain...a beautiful life indeed. He can do the same for you too.

For more on the here.
