    Happy Easter FSU!

    It's 5:55 a.m. and I'm up preparing for the huge Lebanese style barbecue I am hosting after church today. I have love Easter! I over 150 roses and Easter lilies decorating my house and sooo much food. I'll post photos later.

    I haven't had coffee or chocolate to end my Lenten fast yet, but I'm thinking about it now ;)

    I hope you all succeeded in your fasts, and that you enjoy your day celebrating the risen King. I'd love to know how you celebrate.

    He is Risen!

    Not Easter here yet, but we don't do very much, sadly...

    He took the nails for me and he has risen! "Living he loved me, dying he saved me, buried he carried my sins far away. Rising He justified freely forever, One day He's coming, O Glorious Day!" - Casting Crowns

    That song was one of the songs we sang at church this weekend. There's a pond on the back property of my church, and every Easter we have baptisms in the pond at 3 pm. While "Glorious Day" was being played, there was video from last year's baptisms on the screens.

    He is Risen!!!!!!

    Sin, where are your shackles? Death, where is your sting? Hell has been defeated. The grave could not hold the King!!

    Any Robin Mark fans? He's a great Christian singer/songwriter from Northern Ireland and many of his songs are very Irish....He has a nice easter song (but it is not one of his Irish-like songs) with fiddle and tinwhistle, etc.

    I always prefer when Easter is later in April since we're more likely to have nice weather, spring flowers and blossoming trees. To me Easter has always meant the rebirth and renewal of spring as well as the Resurrection of Christ.
