Easter weekend doesn't just mean holidays of course. I had a look at my old blog posting from Easter 2010 here this morning...Easter is resurrection time. Easter is full of hope. Jesus really did rise from death. Death really is defeated.
Ellie and I still cry quite a lot....we and our children have both lost so much....
In the words of Third Day.....
That everything I knew was wrong
It was upside down
The life I thought I had was gone
But You came and whispered love to me
And You gave me strength to carry on
Oh, the sun is shining
There is hope for me again
A new day's dawning
The sun is shining
Yesterday I lost
Everything I had and loved
Then I cried out for You, Lord
And You came and picked me up
And the sorrow lasted through the night
But the joy came with the morn
I will lift my voice
No, I won't be silent
For You heard my cry
And You turned my mourning into dancing
And so forever I'll sing
