Happy Easter to All

Happy Easter to all.
Easter and spring is a time of new life and rebirth.With this in mind, please enjoy some photos from a year ago, of new life emerging.
I am using the words of a song called When They Found Nothing to share the meaning of Easter.
If you are so inclined, you may click on the link to hear my friends Legacy Five sing this song.


THEY WATCHED AS SOLDIERS NAILED THEIR SAVIOR TO A TREE
THEY WITNESS ALL THE ANGUISH THE AGONY
THEY WAITED FOR HIS FATHER TO RESCUE HIM BUT THEN
HE CRIED OUT IT IS FINISHED THEY KNEW IT WAS THE END


THE STONE THAT SEALED THE TOMB HAD FINALLY SEALED THEIR FATE
FOR ALL THEIR HOPES NOW LAY WITHIN THAT BORROWED GRAVE
LEFT WITH ONLY QUESTIONS THEY PONDERED ALL HE SAID


BUT ANSWERS DIDN’T MATTER, FOR NOW THEIR LORD WAS DEAD
THEY BEGAN THEIR FINAL WALK TO SAY ONE LAST GOOD-BY
BUT WHEN THEY REACHED THE TOMB THEY COULD NOT BELIEVE THEIR EYES.


WHEN THEY FOUND NOTHING, THEY FOUND EVERYTHING
IN AN EMPTY TOMB, THEY REALIZED WHAT CHRIST HIMSELF HAD PROPHESIED


THAT DEATH COULD NEVER HOLD THEIR KING
FOR WHEN THEY FOUND NOTHING, THEY FOUND EVERYTHING


HALLELUJAH HE IS RISEN
HALLELUJAH PRAISE THE LAMB
WHO CONQUERED DEATH AND HELL WHO DIED AND ROSE AGAIN!
WHEN THEY FOUND NOTHING, THEY FOUND EVERYTHING
IN AN EMPTY TOMB THEY REALIZED WHAT CHRIST HIMSELF HAD PROPHESIED
THAT DEATH COULD NEVER HOLD THEIR KING

FOR WHEN THEY FOUND NOTHING
THEY FOUND EVERYTHING
THEY FOUND EVERYTHING!
