Allelu! Allelu! Everybody Sing Allelu...

For the Lord has risen, it is true....
Everybody sing Aaaa-lle-lu!

Captured in a singularly still moment preceded by nothing less than our in-home Easter Bunny basket extravaganza, the annual church Easter pot-luck buffet breakfast (complete with Daddy's annual contribution of Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding with Warm Rum Sauce), an egg hunt, the flowering of the cross, and the rehearsal of the Cherub Choir for the 11am service, Sarah and Darren were all smiles...experiencing none of the pre-church sugar come-down that has so characterized our Easters past. We must be growing up.

Along with three decked out choral comrades, the kids belted the lyrics above to the back of the hall. Allelu indeed.

Happy Easter, All!

Sounds like a great day!

In my churchgoing days, way back when, I remember what a wonderful explosion of color and brightness and music that Easter was, after the dark solemn-ness of Lent. I was tired of everything being in a minor key! :-)

Happy Easter!

Your kids look beautiful and handsome as always. What a blessed treat it must be to hear them sing such precious words.
