He has risen!

Boracay, Philippines

Easter blessings to all!
Jesus is risen!

After the pain and suffering of Good Friday comes the glory and victory of Easter Sunday! And so it is with life, that when we experience trials and challenges, in faith, we can have our own Easter experience. In the words of Saint Augustine, "We are an Easter people and Alleluia is our song."

Here are the words of my favorite Easter song which we sang during my Easter season second wedding (after being a widow for nine years) eight years ago...

We are the children of Easter morning
We sing to celebrate our new lives
The dawn of an eternal morning
The fulfillment of our ageless desires
We sing with joy in our hearts overflowing
We sing to beckon those who dwell in the dark
We'll keep on singing till all men celebrate
This Easter morn

We are the children of Easter morning
We sing to proclaim the Lord's might
Now there's meaning to our life of dying
For the Lord, our God, has conquered the night
With joy we dedicate our lives to the service
Of the God of Life whose goodness we've known
Until our lives be themselves our song of Easter morn

May our simple lives be a song of praise
To the goodness of the Lord
May the Lord delight in this song we sing
This song we live with joy
If we had to sing just one song
To the Lord, Creator of life
May our lives be that song resounding in praise
To the goodness and glory of God
