On the third day the friends of Christ coming at daybreak to the place found the grave empty and the stone rolled away. In varying ways they realized the new wonder; but even they hardly realized that the world had died in the night. What they were looking at was the first day of a new creation, with a new heaven and a new earth; and in a semblance of the gardener God walked again in the garden, in the cool not of the evening but the dawn.
~G. K. Chesterton The Everlasting Man
Photos from our Easter morning:
We stayed overnight with Dan’s brother and his family. We were up late dyeing eggs, laughing and listening to bluegrass…
Breakfast was Chocolate Babka (fast becoming a tradition for our family) a fresh citrus salad, eggs and bacon. And of course, lots of coffee!
The camera battery died, so I was only able to get a few action shots of the girls in their Easter dresses which Grandma Brand made for them.
I hope that your Easter was peaceful, and that you had time to reflect with awe on the amazing fact that death has been defeated for those that love Him!
