I hope you shared in the celebration this morning. Death has been swallowed up. Christ has proclaimed victory over the grave! That message was particularly poignant to me this year. My grandfather fell asleep this past November just a few days after his 89th birthday. Because of what we celebrate today, I know that I will see him again. Ponder that for a few moments. It is truly incredible. Talk about a cause for celebration.
So, our family gathered and the kids hunted 4,000 easter eggs in the backyard. Much BBQ was consumed, ale drunk, and joy shared. It was a beautiful day here in Houston. I hope you had a beautiful Easter day wherever you may be.
God be praised. THE LORD IS RISEN! HE HAS RISEN INDEED!
