Easter Morning















Christ the Lord is risen today! Alleluia!
Sons of men, and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia!

The words to his old Christian hymn echoed through my head Sunday morning. Triumph songs that I proclaimed every Easter growing up, continued coming to mind. How much we have to celebrate on this Resurrection Day!

The boys awoke to notes about the Resurrection and a new shirt to wear to church. This Sunday, everything feels NEW! Flowers budding, pear trees blooming, birds chirping in the air. It seems all of nature desires to tell the good news, "The grave can not hold the KING!"

Omar and Lamar were with us this special morning! Our 2010 family photo taken in front of our house! I can't help but wonder what next year's picture will be like with our new child from Ghana! Part of our heart is with you, our little one we've yet to meet, on this special day.

By the way, I've had two people ask me about Omar and Lamar. No, we have not adopted these boys. (I state this because I've been asked twice in the past week.)

Omar and Lamar are two boys who have stolen our hearts. We met them through Water Angels. Whenever we are able, we invite them to spend the weekends with us. It's a blessing for us to have them! They are truly a JOY!

He IS risen. He IS RISEN INDEED!
