As usual, we had a really wonderful but busy Easter.
Every year, our church does a sunrise service (6:00 a.m.). It's always rough getting the kids up, but we are always so glad we went. It is always such a blessing! I got to sing with our church's quartet and really appreciated my pastor's message. I'm so thankful for the sacrifice Christ made for me on the cross!
After our church-provided breakfast, we headed home for a couple of hours until we had to be back at the church for the regular morning service. We had a wonderful time of worship--an Easter cantata, a powerful message, and I was privileged to sing a solo--The Getty's "Power of the Cross". Here is a video of what I sang (man, I wish I could've sounded like THIS!) I never get tired of watching this or listening to her sing.
Such an amazing song with deep truth! I felt so blessed to be a part of such a special day at our church (and, truthfully--was REALLY glad I didn't squeak or squawk in front of all those people in my church! *whew*)
He took each thing out, one by one, and exclaimed over how special it was.
All in all, it was a super day. So thankful to have such meaning behind Easter, and to be able to be with family and truly have a fantastically FUN day!
