I love this quote by Amy Carmichael
...if a sudden jar can cause me to speak an impatient, unloving word, then I know
nothing of Calvary's love. For a cup brimful of sweet water cannot spill even one
drop of bitter water, however suddenly jolted.

It reminds me of Christs great love for us.
My daddy loves to sing traditional hymns at church. He sings them with all the fervor and gusto he can manage. Sometimes to the dismay of those sitting around him! This morning when we sing...Up from the grave He arose... I will be wishing I could hear him singing beside me. I wish my mom and sister were beside me too. But as our family grows, we seem to live away from each other and don't spend Easter together as a family.

Happy Easter everyone!!!

    My favorite Easter's are the ones with you, me, our baskets and our new "wears" sitting on the couch for Kathy's proverbial Easter picture. Love it.
