Happy Easter Day!

Joyful, joyful we adore thee!
God of glory, Lord of love;
hearts unfold like flowers before thee,
opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
drive the dark of doubt away.
Giver of immortal gladness,
fill us with the light of day!
(Old postcard found amongst family papers. Lyrics: Henry Van Dyke. Music: Ludwig van Beethoven)

Happy Easter, Decadent. May God bless you and your family today.

Our church choir presented "The Risen Christ" cantata by Keith Getty today and I got chocked up in parts of the cantata at the impact of what Christ did for us.
