Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! It is so incredible to think that this is the 4th Easter since I've been diagnosed! The first was spent alone at home, the second was spent in the hospital, the third was spent at one church, and this one at another!
It has been a long weekend, but a good one.  I was able to attend my first Good Friday service! Easter is a celebration, but it wouldn't be possible without Christ's death on the cross, which we commemorate on Good Friday.  Again, this year, I was reminded that Christ endured so much pain for me, and all mankind, so he knows exactly what I'm going through, even when I feel like other people don't!

One special song to me at the Good Friday service was "Jesus, Thank You."

The mystery of the cross I cannot comprehend
The agonies of Calvary
You the perfect Holy One, crushed Your Son
Who drank the bitter cup reserved for me

By Your perfect sacrifice I’ve been brought near
Your enemy You’ve made Your friend
Pouring out the riches of Your glorious grace
Your mercy and Your kindness know no end

Your blood has washed away my sin
Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied
Jesus, thank You
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table
Jesus, thank You

And a few pictures of Easter through the last few years!

Happy Easter!
