Alive Today.

“When I Think about the Lord,
How He picked me up and turned me around,
How He placed my feet on solid ground

It makes me wanna shout,
Thank you JESUS,
LORD, your worthy, of all the glory, and all the honor,
And all the praise…”


Thankful for Easter.
Thankful for the Cross.


Thankful for solid ground.



And thankful our Resurrection Garden sprouted grass just in time!!!

Have you heard of this before? It’s so cute. The girls planted wheat grass seed on Wednesday after putting together this garden to represent Jesus’ tomb … {Soak the seeds overnight and then plant liberally on good soil.}


{Day One}


We spritzed it with water during the day and kept it in a warm place.
By day three, I thought it was a failure project … but then tiny little sprouts appeared …


{Day Three}


… the sealed tomb …


and then today, perfect for Easter Sunday … the grass REALLY appeared. The stone is rolled away … and three crosses to symbolize the story of Jesus and his death AND resurrection.


{Day Five}




“He’s alive today … the stone’s been rolled away … I can hear the angels say,

‘Let all the world rejoice – He’s alive!!'”
