New Life

'Twas Easter Sunday.
The full-blossomed trees
Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In his great mercy He has give us new birth into a living hope
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
I Peter 1:3 (NIV)

The King of all ages, the Giver of life,
For a moment lies silent and still;
But a power sent from heaven comes breaking the night,
And death must bow to His will.

Then a stone moves, the earth shakes (and) birds start singing,
The sun shines, the earth warms (for) new life it's bringing. . .
For death could not hold their King.

I am catching up on the last 4 posts - beautiful thoughts and photos. I quoted McCumber today on Facebook, from our SS lesson today. He said, "If you have a hallelujah anywhere in the depths of your being, it must be looking for an exit sign right now." Love it!
