Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, oh my soul!

hey everyone!! hope you had a blessed and wonderful Easter with your family and friends. “Up from the grave He arose! with a mighty triumph o’er his foes; he arose a victor from the dark domain, and He lives forever with his saints to reign. He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ Arose!” We have had a great day. Em was a bit fussy this morning, mostly because she was being persistent (in a not so good way where she wanted to pull the computer cord and mommy said “No” 3,000,000 times and had to ask for help from daddy!). Nonetheless, she was all gussied up in her beautiful new dress from Grandma Kim when we left for church.

Our church has a cantata or special music service for Easter and the music really is beautiful. I’m so glad to be a part of this church and this choir. The talent never ceases to amaze me. I can’t think of Easter without thinking of my grandmothers. We would always go down to Granny’s on the way to church and show off our dresses and then hunt eggs after church with all our cousins. I don’t know how we convinced the adults to come hide eggs for us or help us hunt. But we always had fun. In this year’s Cantata, there was the worship song, “Behold He Comes”. It was kind of a “mash-up” with the last verse of “It is Well with My Soul” mixed in. For those who don’t know, “It is Well…” was my Grandma Ruth’s favorite hymn. There are SO many beautiful hymns, especially for this time of year. It is hard to pick a favorite, but I was looking through the lyrics of “It is Well…” tonight and the 3rd verse is so perfect for Easter and the more I study this song, the more I see how much Grandma could have loved it and why. Here’s verse 3: “My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought! My sin, not in part, but the whole, is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more! Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, oh my soul!” How could I follow that up with anything more appropriate?

after helping Em pick up eggs at daycare, I knew she’d love the church Easter egg hunt. Robbie wanted to get in on the fun as well, so he went with us. He was the photographer until he wanted his picture made with Em, who didn’t really want to cooperate as it was very windy outside and she was distracted with all the other kids playing with their eggs. Anyway, here are a few pictures for you!
