Spring is in the air!

When I found out that a friend had just gotten some new baby chicks I had to see them... and a baby chicken photoshoot ensued! (sorry if you think that's odd, but I'm a sucker for baby animals...) Also I thought it would be rather fitting consider it being Easter weekend!

Modeling is a hard day's work! ;)

While little baby chicks are just the cutest thing this side the Mississippi river, Easter eggs, bunnies, and all thing spring aren't what the true meaning of Easter is all about. Actually "Easter" isn't even what I should say I'm celebrating, this weekend is I am celebrating the Resurrection of my Savior, Jesus Christ!

I compiled with my Pastor to put together a short video that was played at my church's Good Friday service. If you have 5 minutes, please take a moment & think about what it means.

Even though the video has a serious message, it's not where things end. Jesus died on the cross because of our sins but he did it because of his great love for us. It really blows my mind that the maker of the universe died for someone so undeserving as me.

And the best part of the story... three days after he died, he rose again! Hallelujah I Know That My Redeemer Lives!

"How Deep The Father's Love For Us"

How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross
My guilt upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no powr's, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
