Happy Easter Morning!

We have already had an AWESOME Easter!! We are home from an early-morning sunrise service put on by our church's youth. It was filled with some great music ("Because He Lives" and "Morning has Broken" are two of my VERY favorites!) and a great message. Just a wonderful way to start off the day!

Delaney sang with three other middle schoolers and did a BEAUTIFUL job. They sang this song (which I absolutely love):



And because I'm in a "music mood," here is another one of my all-time favorites that seems particularly perfect for Easter morning.



As you celebrate Easter today, I pray that you will sense God's blessings all around you...

that you will know that God is always by your side...

that you will know that your shortcomings and failings are never too bad to keep you from His love...

that you will know the truth of this day...

that you will know that there is always the promise of a joyful tomorrow...

Because He lives!!!

Because He lives! That's another of my favorite songs{since you were on the subject}. I love love love the youtube video, too. I've never seen a video of that song, but do love it.

I hope you have a very Happy Easter.

Happy Easter to you and your family,Cheryl. I'm glad ya'll have have a great day thus far.

I didn't know Delaney was gonna be singing today. I guess that's why she was "practicing" on Thursday as ya'll were leaving :-).

Enjoy the rest of your day, my friend. And again, Happy Easter!

so glad you had a great morning. It was an amazing day here as well, the weather was fantastic, beyond belief, and it is hard to sit out here in the middle of the forest where I live and not realize you are in God's presence every moment. Love and Hugs
