It's Easter.


The day is here

The day when the light exploded out of a hole in the rock

When a heap of dead bones began to breathe again

When God Incarnate rose from the dead

And every sin was laid on him two days before

The sins of everyone elected

And he rose again with our salvation assured.

Jesus Christ, the son of God, died for me.

The wonder. And the glory.

Let me always sing praise.

Your grace is all I will ever need-

All-encompassing, all sufficient

And when you carried all my sins

It is freely given to me in exchange for faith

You have redeemed me from the pit

Never let me stop singing praise.


Happy Easter, everyone. I'd advise you to take a minute to marvel at the grace and redemption of our Savior at this time in the year - it's truly unfathomable. He gave up so much for our salvation - Jesus is completely deserving of all our praise.

  6. "...the light exploded out of a hole in the rock" - lovely poem, Faith! We (well, I, anyway) always need reminders to never stop singing praise, too. Because what He did for us is amazing and so indescribable and I don't think about it enough.

    Your new blog look does look very professional! Maybe a little more contrast between the words and background would be nice? (it's just that in the comments section, the dates/times blend in a bit) I definitely like your menu-list-thing! HOW did you do that? (it seems like JavaScript, which I don't know much about, but I didn't know you could do it in Blogger!) And the comment box doesn't look like the standard (slightly tacky) one. Did you write the code yourself?

    1. Thank you so much! Actually, all I did was use one of Blogger's new templates which enables the layout and color and everything else. If you go to your blog's page on Blogger, you should have the option to do the same thing- it's under themes and the new ones are marked with the word new.
