That's MY KING!

What a wonderful Easter Celebration we had...

We had two services this morning at our church. This was the first time for us. Our choir and praise team were real ministers through music today. The praise team had to be there at 6:45, and the choir came at 7:30. Ready to lead the body in worship at the 8:00 service, and then again at the 10:15 service.

Good music, Sweet Spirit, Wonderful Message from God's Word... and then the most precious part... four people made decisions for salvation and following the Lord in Believer's Baptism.

Can I just say GLORY? !!!

It just doesn't get much better than that.

And then....
The family gathers at our home for a wonderful meal together...
Of course we have to take family photos in the front yard...
And then this year we added the fun of hiding eggs with Aubrey ( a very short session I might add). She really liked making bubbles and chasing them much more than finding eggs. :)

And after they all go to their homes - or to other family gatherings...
I was able to take a "God Ordained" Sunday afternoon nap.

Blessed... Beyond Measure...



So following the video about Good Friday...

I just had to add this one .... I hope you enjoy :)

GLORY!!! Indeed!!! I praise the Lord DeeDee for the people who surrendered their hearts and lives to our Lord Jesus Christ! Awesome!

Just stopping by to say hello - congrats on being Lynette's featured blog today. And, thanks for the encouraging words. I found myself in tears for the first time on Easter Sunday, because I am so in awe of what Christ did for me. I have sometimes wondered why He chose me to be a light in my unsaved family...but yesterday was so thankful He did, because I DON'T want to live without Him.

Praise God!!! I am so excited that four people became new creations in Christ!! There is nothing more exciting and thrilling than that!!

Linda said...

Dee Dee, It sounds like you had a wonderful Easter,...and even got to top it off with a nap! Perfect. (:>)

As you could see on Lynnette's blog, we celebrated the night before, so my Easter was a quiet one,...and I even wrote a poem about it!

Our morning Cantata at church was very moving and beautiful. But having 4 people accept Christ on Easter and follow in Baptism is such a blessing. Glory to God!

Congratulations on being the featured blog on Lynnette's "Getting To Know You" today. I will check out your fav's.

I am drawn to you and your sweet spirit.

Have a great day!

Hi! I came over to visit you from Lynnette's blog. I LOVED that video! By the end, I had chills and just wanted to jump up and shout, "Amen!!" but I was afraid my 2 year old might wonder what in the world was going on with her Mommy! LOL!! I'm glad you had a wonderful Easter!
