we serve a RISEN SAVIOR

today we celebrated with friends and family the HOPE we have because
Christ has risen, He has risen indeed! hallelujah!
all that is within me cries for You alone be glorified Emmanuel God with us
my heart sings a brand new song the debt is paid these chains are gone
Emmanuel God with us
there is no greater gift.
and so, i want to live my life in praise and service to Him!
such a tiny offering compared to Calvary
nevertheless we lay it at your feet
(excerpts from Mercy Me God With Us)

my handsome fellas. i am so blessed by theses "men" in my life.

sissy bear and her new grown up Easter haircut

waiting for the gates to be opened and the hunt to begin!

who could believe it was hot enough for the first swim of the year? we all decided we had never before experienced Easter swimmers! hot outside but oh so freezing water!

joe and t-dawg took the canoe out for a float. the river is perfect this time of year. i must say i was a wee bit nervous for this crew but it was a success!

and we can't celebrate without the annual egg dye!

a favorite time around here. this year the bear drank the pink dye, brax spilled the blue on his belly and legs so he bore the look of a bruised and battered victim, and everyone managed to stain their hands so bad i googled how to remove egg dye from kids hands and found out toothpaste works wonders! who knew?

this next year, may we remember the resurrection and offer our lives to Jesus daily.

what are you doing for Jesus?
