Easter and Birthday

We celebrated Easter with family - first with church family and then with Kim's family. It was a wonderful day.

Easter was early this year - very early. In fact the last time Easter came so soon was in the year 1913. And the next time it will be this early will be 2228! Providentially this early Easter landed on Abby's birthday - she would have been 13. What a comfort on her birthday to know that what we celebrate this day is what gives us the assurance that we will see her again. Abby we miss you greatly, but we look forward to that wonderful day when we will see you again.

Lives again our glorious King; Alleluia!
where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once he died, our souls to save; Alleluia!
where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!
following our exalted Head; Alleluia!
made like him, like him we rise; Alleluia!
ours the cross the grave, the skies, Alleluia!

Chirst the Lord is Risen Today, vs. 3-4

It looks like you had a wonderful day. It is a comfort to know that you will see that little one again someday.

We were recently on and off visiting your church. We are just finding your blog. Come for a visit to ours when you get an extra moment...

Bless you today.
