~HE is RISEN~

This morning we celebrated our Risen Lord as we watched the sun rise over Cheung Chau Island with our students. What a tremendous visual reminder of Christ's victory over darkness and sin. He is Risen... Risen Indeed!

This is one of my favorite songs to sing on Easter Sunday. Really forces me to stop and reflect on what Christ went through for me and how I should respond.

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

Forbid it Lord that I should boast
Save in the death of Christ my God
All the vain things that charm me most
I sacrificed them to His blood

See from His head His hands His feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did ere such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown

Were the whole realm of nature mine
that were a present far too small
Love so amazing so divine
Demands my soul my life my all

Oh the wonderful Cross, oh the wonderful Cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
Oh the wonderful Cross, oh the wonderful cross
All who gather here by grace draw near
And bless Your name


How exciting it is to rejoice in our Savior and His victory!

Here's our little bunny wishing you a blessed Easter holiday!
