Happy Easter!




We had a great Easter Sunday! It is so hard to believe it was Olivia's second Easter - Madelyn, Mary Grace and Olivia were born on Good Friday. Last year, on Easter Sunday, Madelyn went to be with Jesus. What a comfort it is that on the day of her death we are able to rejoice with HOPE in the GIFT of ETERNAL LIFE made possible by JESUS CHRIST. God sent his Son, Jesus, to bear the sins of humanity and die upon a cross. In taking our sins upon himself, he conquered death as we know it. For those who believe

I love the words from one of the songs we sang at church on Sunday. Over this past year it has become one of our very favorite songs.


"Christ is Risen"
Let no one caught in sin remain*
Inside the lie of inward shame
We fix our eyes upon the cross
And run to him who showed great love
And bled for us
Freely you bled, for us

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave!

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with him again
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave!

Beneath the weight of all our sin
You bow to none but heavens will
No scheme of hell, no scoffer's crown
No burden great can hold you down
In strength you reign
Forever let your church proclaim

Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with him again
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave

Oh death! Where is your sting?
Oh hell! Where is your victory?
Oh Church! Come stand in the light!
The glory of God has defeated the night!

Oh death! Where is your sting?
Oh hell! Where is your victory?
Oh Church! Come stand in the light!
Our God is not dead, he's alive! he's alive!

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave
Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with him again
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave

Rise up from the grave...
