~HAPPY EASTER~


In Christ alone, my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
this cornerstone, this solid ground
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease.
My comforter, my all in all
here in the love of Christ I stand.


In Christ alone, who took on flesh,
fullness of God in helpless Babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
scorned by the ones He came to save.
'Til on that cross as Jesus died,
the wrath of God was satisfied.
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid
here in the death of Christ I live.


There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain
then, bursting forth in glorious day
up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory
sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
for I am His and He is mine
bought with the precious blood of Christ.


No guilt in life, no fear in death
this is the pow’r of Christ in me
from life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
can ever pluck me from His hand
til He returns or calls me home,
here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand!

Your Joshua is a little nut!
It's great to see them all together and all smiling.
Thanks for Saturday evening, it was nice hanging out together.

Those pictures are so great. I agree with Tracy...Joshua is a little nutty (he must get it from his dad!). I'm glad you got to spend some quality time with your family over the weekend.
