Happy Easter!

It’s Easter Sunday!

While a lot of people will pass by this day with little more than some chocolate and colorful Easter eggs, I hope that you will spend today celebrating how Christ has risen!

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, and going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

Matthew 28:1-10

Christmas Songs I Love Listening To

Happy day 4 of December! It still doesn’t feel like December to me but I guess I’ll get used to it the closer it gets to Christmas. Here are some Christmas songs that I love listening to around this time of year.

Carol of the bells – Straight No Chaser

Christmas is here, Bringing good cheer to young and old, Meek and the bold
Ding, dong, ding, dong, That is their song, With joyful ring, All caroling

The Christmas Can-Can – Straight No Chaser

It’s time to do the Christmas can-can, If you can’t, can’t dance, well, that’s OK (not going to do the kick line). All you need is a tree, some lights about a thousand presents, wrap them up and pray for snow. Run to your closet, find your Christmas sweater screaming carols all the way (fa-la-la-la-la). Maine all the way to California it’s the Christmas can-can Halloween to Christmas day

The 12 Days of Christmas – Straight No Chaser

On the 9th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, 9 ladies dancing, 8 ladies dancing, 7 ladies dancing, 6 ladies dancing, 5! Better not shout, you better not cry, You better not, in a pear tree. On the 9th, No! On the 8th, No! On the 7th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me 7 swans a-swimming, 6 geese a-laying, 5 golden rings! (Fa la la la)

Hold On Christmas – MercyMe

The colder it gets outside, The more it warms my soul. Christmas is on my mind, I just gotta make it home. It won’t be long ‘till I am singing to the rhythm of the Salvation Army bell ringing, But this road keeps going for miles and miles. Oh please get me there on time.

I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day – Casting Crowns

Then rang the bells more loud and deep, God is not dead, nor doth He sleep (Peace on Earth, peace on Earth), The wrong shall fail, the right prevail With peace on earth, good will to men, Then ringing singing on its way The world revolved from night to day, A voice, a chime, a chant sublime, Of peace on earth, good will to men

Joy – 1 Girl Nation

I hear the carols on the radio. So turn it up and let the whole world know. Because I’ve got a love that’s so There is no greater joy. I hear it in the bells they’re ringing up and down the street. I see it shining in the smiles of everyone I meet. It feels to me like hope is stirring with the winter wind. Heaven has sent us a savior. What a night there is no greater!

The Chipmunk Song – Alvin & The Chipmunks

Christmas, Christmas time is near, Time for toys and time for cheer, We’ve been good, but we can’t last, Hurry Christmas, hurry fast, Want a plane that loops the loop, Me, I want a hula hoop, We can hardly stand the wait, Please Christmas, don’t be late.

Ding Dong Merrily On High – Rend Collective

Ding Dong! Ding Dong! Ding Dong! Ding Dong! Ding Dong merrily on high, The curse of sin is broken: Ding Dong open up your eyes, The celebration’s starting! Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis! Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Merry Christmas Everyone – Rend Collective

C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S I-S-T-M-A-S Yes it’s Christmas! Snow is Falling, All around me, Children Playing, Having Fun, It’s the Season, Of Love and understanding, Merry Christmas Everyone.

Shout For Joy – Lincoln Brewster

He was strong to save, Now our Savior reigns in us, Shout for joy, For the Son of God Is the Saving One, He’s the Saving One, Shout for joy, See what love has done, He has come for us, He’s the Saving One
