This Joyful Eastertide
This joyful Eastertide,
Away with sin and sorrow!
My love, the Crucified,
Has sprung to life this morrow:
Had Christ, who once was slain,
Not burst his three-day prison,
Our faith had been in vain:
But now has Christ arisen,
But now has Christ arisen!
My dad died almost eighteen years ago, but sometimes it seems as if I saw him yesterday because of the love and memories he and my mother gave to us. Because of Easter, I know I'll see him again.
My students made Easter eggs before spring break which, sadly, is coming to an end. I asked them to write a psalm of praise for Easter. Many of them turned them into letters, but their messages to Him are what I was hoping for. I can't say I have a favorite because each child worked so hard and really put their hearts into the project. I'll share a couple with you!

|I didn't ask her to include me...but I was touched she did!|
I wish you a joyful Eastertide! May all your Easter bunnies be dark chocolate!!
