Happy Easter

Hope everyone has had a blessed Easter Day. We certainly have (with the exception of crabby kids). Getting 4 kids around and to church by 7 am is quite a feat, but worth it. We love sunrise service--we were thankful to do it inside today because of the much needed rain. And enjoyed the music and testimonies. It was a full house this morning. We always have a breakfast after that and the men do ALL the cooking. What a feast; bacon, sausage patties, pancakes, French toast, crepes, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, coffee cakes, fresh fruit, lots of coffee and juice. Makin ya hungry? C and I ran home for 30 minutes during Sunday school. She went back to bed for a short nap. The church was so packed when we got back that they were opening up the holding area in the back of the church--for those of you not familiar with our church, it is a small country church--so it's always a big deal to open the back up. It's getting a little bit habitual for me to sing the song "Was it a morning like this" done by Sandi Patty around Easter Sunday. That was my special music this morning. One of the church ladies asked me before church started if I was going to sing that song. When I replied that I was, she said she had woke up this morning and had been dreaming that I was singing that song. COOL! The Easter Cantata is scheduled for tonight. This is a musical production put on by a community choir. It is entitled "Touched by the Christ". We have been working on it for about the last 8 weeks or so. It has some dramatic readings interspersed among the musical pieces. J will probably be staying home with the kids--as the weekend has been too big and busy and they are grouchy! Below is a 5 minute slide show to share our 2009 Easter experiences from this last week with you--it is set to one of my favorite songs (Arise, my love by Newsong)--hope ya enjoy it
Oh, and by the way, no children were neglected by the production of this video!! It looks more complicated than it really was. M

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live,

but Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in

the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me
