The Bible tells us that God will meet all our needs. He feeds the birds of the air and clothes the grass with the splendor of lilies.

The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake. Basil Hume
