Worth a Thousand Words

On Easter Sunday Mom and Dad went to church for the first time since Mom's brain aneurysm! They also went to my Dad's parents' home for Easter dinner. Mom is able to get out of the house so much more now thanks to the new handicapped-accessible van and to the fact that she is getting so much stronger. Here are some pictures from Easter:

Mom and Dad with Kim Thompson:

Mom talking to Shayleigh Davis, a girl in the co-op (Mom loves every student in the co-op and has dedicated so much time and energy to each one of them):

Mom with two wonderful friends, Yvette and Heather:

I saved the best for last:

They sang the song 'In Christ Alone' at the Twin Cities Easter service, which has become a favorite for both Mom and Dad through Mom's time in the hospital and her continuing recovery. It's one of my favorites, too. I'm going to end this post with the words to the song:

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
'Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
'til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
