Easter Sunday this year looked a bit differently than it normally does. I am filling in as church pianist in our previous town which is almost an hour and a half away. Which meant that Easter morning I left before everyone was up. It was a gray and rainy Sunday and we didn't get to meet up as a family until after church was over. Lunch was mexican food and dinner was delivery pizza because I was too tired to cook a full Easter meal.
But you know even though it wasn't the most idyllic day… it was a beautiful Easter. The words from our pastor's message keep resonating with me… "I need Easter every day." And boy do I. I want the celebration and the beauty of what Easter means to be something that is on my tongue every day. The gratitude and that overwhelming feeling of what Christ did for me on the cross… I want to remember that daily and to celebrate it daily.
Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe
My sin had left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow
He washed away all my sins
All my sins
And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete
"Jesus died my soul to save"
My lips shall still repeat
Yes, He did
Oh, praise the one who paid my debt
And raised this life up from the dead
