What A Beautiful Day..Happy Easter


Happy Easter....





This morning I had the most wonderful blessing. I went to Sunrise service on the beach at the top of our street. Standing at the beach I could not help but think of all the blessings in my life. There I am standing at the beach with thousands of other people celebrating the wonderful news that He Has Risen. How special that a group of people from all different faiths can gather at a place that in itself should prove to any doubted there is a GOD and pray for one common reason..To Celebrate Easter.
Sundays are a hard day for me and to be honest I really did not want to get up for sunrise service. But it is something that Emily and I love to do and I feel like I have disappointed her way too much these past few months. So when that alarm went off...off we went. Then I came home and slept till noon . My prayer for today is to feel well enough to enjoy Easter with our family. I have to say our last few holidays have been really hard with my surgeries and treatments.
I am so happy I went to the service. We only got to stay for half of it. But it felt really good that we got to even go. It was just beautiful at the beach. I watched in awe as God painted the skies with beautiful reminders of his beauty. I wanted share some pictures I took with my cell phone.

If that's how beautiful it was with a cell phone, then it must have been amazing in person.

What a glorious sunrise....special just for you and Emily. What a wonderful gift that you were able to go and to spend that special time with Emily. As you said people from all faiths there to just celebrate the empty tomb, to say Halleluah he is risen! What a great way to start out Easter!

Amy...I love the photo of you on the beach with the sun rising behind you! Here in California the sun sets over the ocean rather than rising...and I am babbling! Happy easter my friend! He has risen indeed and because he has, we have hope!

What beautiful pictures, I'm sure it was an amazing service!

I came over here after seeing your name on my followers list, and I am just blown away by what little I've read! You have such strong faith to keep going through these challenging times, and I am totally in awe. I am praying for your son and his doctors and that all will be well with your family. God bless!
