Happy Easter

Happy Easter to one and all.

7 Quick Takes will return next week full of things like Royal Weddings and crazy weather (it has been cloudy and rainy for close to a week here so far) and who knows what else.

This weekend have a wonderful time with family and friends. We will be celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus here at Chez Knit. Shoe Queen is home for the weekend and there might be Easter candy.

I think the words of one of my favorite “modern” hymns says best what I wish I had words to say.

See What a Morning
(Keith Getty and Stuart Townend)
See, what a morning, gloriously bright,
With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem;
Folded the grave-clothes, tomb filled with light,
As the angels announce, "Christ is risen!"
See God's salvation plan,
Wrought in love, borne in pain, paid in sacrifice,
Fulfilled in Christ, the Man,
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!

See Mary weeping, "Where is He laid?"
As in sorrow she turns from the empty tomb;
Hears a voice speaking, calling her name;
It's the Master, the Lord raised to life again!
The voice that spans the years,
Speaking life, stirring hope, bringing peace to us,
Will sound till He appears,
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!

One with the Father, Ancient of Days,
Through the Spirit who clothes faith with certainty.
Honor and blessing, glory and praise
To the King crowned with pow'r and authority!
And we are raised with Him,
Death is dead, love has won, Christ has conquered;
And we shall reign with Him,
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!
