Happy Resurrection Sunday!

Dan is off to Haiti for work as of 6:30 this morning, gone till Wednesday. Thankfully we all got to attend Easter services at PCC last night. (Props to a church that has 6 Easter services over the whole weekend, including one in Spanish! :))

This morning while the kids wolfed down breakfast, I read aloud the Easter story from the Jesus Storybook Bible (easily my favorite kids' bible ever!) and was struck anew at just how much Jesus gave up for us. I'm so grateful to God for all he has done and continues to do for me!

I'll leave you with these song lyrics, and this video. I love them both! :)


In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless Babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save

Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live!

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From a life's first cry till final breath
Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand
