The First Hunt!

Tuesdays With Moisi will continue next week, Lord willing.

Today I’m starting with Easter and then I’ll go back to last Tuesday when our new grandson was born. After a glorious Easter Service we went home to grill some lamb and make some scalloped potatoes to take to our kids house for an Easter meal. Our DIL’s mother and granny added a salad, deviled eggs and dessert for our meal. It was casual working around a newborn’s eating schedule and Addy’s nap.

Once Addy was fully awake she hunted eggs and easter treats to put in her basket. Warning: Photo overload.

We first had an inside hunt.

Then we went outside for a hunt since the weather was fabulous.

Patiently waiting for all the adults to come outside to watch.

Jaymison was oblivious to all the fun.

Easter Snapshots

Just two photos this evening. Getting ready for an Easter egg hunt. We had a full and glorious Easter Day. It was a full week for us and for one of my brother’s sons who had their first baby two days after JJ was born. Second cousins a few states apart. My brother’s first grandson, too. He already has two sweet granddaughters. Lots of very tired mommies and daddies, baba’s and gramps’. Goodnight for now with this finale in the sky on Easter day!

Christ is Risen!

Christ Is Risen!

Christ Is Risen!                  He Is Risen Indeed!
ХРИСТОС  ВОСКРЕС!    ВОИСТИНУ ВОСКРЕС!
Khris-tos Vos-kres!            Vo-isti-nu  Vos-kres!

Blessings to all on this Glorious Easter Day!

One of my favorite Easter hymns growing up was Low in the Grave He lay. You just have to hear it sung in a church full of Russian Baptists! (In Russian of course) This song is sung with emotion and joy that can’t be missed.

Low in the Grave He Lay

Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior,
Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!

Refrain

Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!

Refrain

Death cannot keep its Prey, Jesus my Savior;
He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!

Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

We are going to an Easter Brunch at our new church before our Easter morning service. Later we will be taking grilled lamb and scalloped potatoes to the Eastside kids’ home for a small Easter celebration.

Happy Easter everyone!
