Easter....I love Easter...pretty dresses..bright colors..blooming flowers..smiling faces..and a RISEN SAVIOR!  Norman and I headed to my parents for the weekend and enjoyed Easter lunch on Saturday with my family at my grandmother's.  On Sunday we went to church with my parents and brother.  The church is led by the pastor that I grew up listening to each and every Sunday morning.  Oh me...I felt so "at home".  I love my old church family....if you are reading this and you are "Old Victory" then YES, I am talking about you!  I love worship time, and on Easter I couldn't help but to stare down at my protruding belly and thank God for his blessings.  I also thought a lot about our baby who is with Jesus.  That baby has seen and been held in the nail scarred hands.  As we sang a familiar song I was filled with so many emotions....I wanted to share part of the song with've probably heard it before....

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From a life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
'Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand
