Fighting for Florida
Apr 21 2011
My wife Jeanette and I send greetings and best wishes to everyone celebrating Holy Week and Easter in Florida and around the world. I want to wish an especially Happy Easter to the brave men and women of our armed forces, who are away from their loved ones but are hopefully finding comfort in the company of their colleagues, their warm thoughts of home and the presence of God in their lives.
As we celebrate Christ's Resurrection, we commemorate His life, embrace His special and unconditional love, and give thanks for the eternal blessings that our Savior gave His life for. The miracle of Easter offers hope and a spirit of renewal to all who seek inspiration to fulfill their individual promise.
Especially during this Holy Week, I am grateful for my family and friends, the liberties we all enjoy as Americans, and the privilege of representing over 18 million Floridians in the U.S. Senate. I also commemorate those we have lost in the past year and find solace in knowing that, as we celebrate the Resurrection, we should rejoice in knowing that our dearly departed have been welcomed into God’s Kingdom.
May you and your family continue to be blessed with God's gift of love and peace, especially on this special holiday.
