He Is Risen - Matthew 28:6

Here in southwest Missouri it may be storming right now, but our spirits are not dampened! ✞ I pray that this post finds you and yours rejoicing in a risen Savior on this glorious Resurrection morn! 

Yesterday was jam packed with activity and I never did get a chance to sit down and put together a post. 

I boiled and dyed a dozen brown eggs in the morning...

...and decorated our dogwood tree for the community drive-thru egg hunt.

People decorated their windows and yards with eggs and the good news of Jesus Christ. Then, starting at 2:00 in the afternoon, area families drove around to see the displays and count the eggs, and a few of the churches gave out goodies to the children.

Of all the lovely displays in our town, this was my favorite...

At seven o' clock in the evening we participated in a city-wide prayer event. Folks met on Main Street then, led by the mayor, we drove around the town and each family prayed over our town from their cars. We plan to do it again next month.

Then, last night, while I was working in the kitchen and preparing food for today, we watched the Branson Sight and Sound production of Jesus on-line for free. Here's the link for anyone who is interested in watching (it runs through tonight). Click HERE.

It's time for church, so I will end with this...

I wrote this song back in 1990. Even though you all can't hear the tune, I hope you enjoy the words. God bless one and all! And Happy Resurrection Sunday!


They placed a scarlett robe around Him
A crown of thorns upon His head
They mocked and spit upon Him
Then to crucify away they led
Upon His cross was written words
This is how they read
"Jesus, the King of the Jews!"


He is risen!
He is risen!
Oh, yes, my Savior's risen!
He's washed me white as snow
Salvation to me He's shown
He is risen!
He is risen!
Oh, yes, my Savior's risen!
"Jesus, the King of  the Jews!"

Two thieves were crucified with Him
One on either side
Darkness fell across the land
In the ninth hour Jesus cried,
"My God! My God! My Father, Thee!
Why hast thou forsaken Me?"
"Jesus, the King of the Jews!"


After three days of mourning
The death of my Lord
An angel did appear
And rolled the stone away
Behold! Behold!
Where Jesus had lay
The tomb was found empty
Upon that blessed day!
Jesus Christ is King!

  1. I like how your town celebrated. Our church went to all the kids homes over 2 days and left eggs and baskets with goodies. So many great things coming out of the Covid pandemic. Happy Easter!

    1. That sounds like fun, too, Susan! Wonderful idea! And, yes, I agree whole-heartedly! It seems that all eyes are on Jesus, whether people realize it or not! Blessings! <3
