Easter Blogging Break

Hello all! I'm going to take a week off here and spend a little time with the family. Not scheduling any blog posts ahead but hope to focus on family and then Easter next weekend. Blessings to you and yours in the coming week! See you on the other side.

In the meantime, I shall leave you with two of my favorite Passion Week hymns:



What language shall I borrow
to thank thee, dearest friend,
for this thy dying sorrow,
thy pity without end?
O make me thine forever;
and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never
outlive my love for thee.




(This song can reduce me to tears no matter how many times I've heard it!)

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 power of Christ in me
From a life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
'Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand


Amen!

May you know the above joys as you enter into this holy week.

I love In Christ Alone, I sang it with the worship team last Easter, it is very powerful. The part that hits me most is " For I am His and He is mine" it just makes it very real for me.

Have a wonderful blessed Easter!

In Christ Alone is one of my VERY favorite songs, too (I especially love Travis Cottrell's version--my heart just soars with his voice on those words!!!). I'll miss you, even as I'm behind with writing and reading blogs, but hope you'll be richly blessed this week! :)
