Happy Easter to All! The Lord is Risen Indeed!

Lord, open our lips, and our mouth shall proclaim your praises.

Easter sing

Christ the Lord is risen today—Al-le-lu-ia!

Earth and Heaven in chorus say—Al-le-lu-ia!

Easter sand tomb and crossBounce was delighted to build in the sand throughout the service.  He proudly recreated Jesus’ tomb.  Children everywhere dug their toes into the sand and built crosses, tombs and raised small toys from the dead.

As Scooter later said, “That was the best church service ever!”

And with the clang of the bell, they were off!

After singing, prayer and egg hunts, we all settled into our own pursuits.

Easter christ bookAnd I counted my blessings.

Two quotes I particularly enjoyed today from this 14th century monastic work are,

If you consider what peace a good life will bring to yourself and what joy it will give to others, I think you will therefore be more concerned about your spiritual progress.

And, Keep an eye primarily upon yourself, and admonish yourself instead of your friends.
