"Jesus Christ is risen today..."
That song has been playing in my head all day. It started playing as soon as I opened my eyes this morning and then it was the first and last hymn we sang at Mass. It's still running through my mind, lifting my spirit, spilling sunshine into my heart.
It's Easter Sunday, allelujah!
All of my kids are here, but I didn't prepare baskets this morning - just set a few boxes of malted milk Robin's Eggs and Reese's peanut butter eggs out on the table. I didn't even have all of my kids at church with me. TG is sick, bless her heart.
But Easter is more than all of that - it's the lightness of being in the very center of me that says everything is going to be okay.
"Because Christ rose from the dead, we know that sin and death and Satan have been decisively defeated."
~ Billy Graham
I hope you have all felt that lightness of being on this blessed Easter day!
