He is Risen!

I might be the only Christian on the planet blogging on Easter morning…but Jones has pink eye, so we are home. He’s a trooper and is doing just fine, but I certainly didn’t want to be THAT GIRL bringing him to church just so I could show off my kids’ super cute Easter outfits.

Don’t worry, they got to wear them yesterday at the Gore family reunion in Hattiesburg. I’ll get pictures soon.

We had a great time on our Mississippi adventure. This year, my mom rented us a cabin just outside of town so we could all stay together and have space for the kids to play. It was great to spend more time with mom and then get to see tons of family that I hardly ever get to see. (My Mamaw had 9 brothers and sisters – so it’s a pretty large crew at this point.)

I love that my kids get to see all of John’s family at Thanksgiving and all of mine at Easter. I LOVE family traditions and am still trying to figure out which ones we’ll incorporate as the kids get older.

I’m rambling…but I really wanted to share this song by Travis Cottrell that I’m meditating on today. I tried to find a youtube so you could hear it…but you’ll just have to splurge the dollar and snag it off iTunes. It’s called “2000 Years” (Korie and I heard him sing this at the Beth Moore conference a few weeks ago.)

Here are the lyrics:

If I could see 2000 years ago
Travel back in time and walk in the
Day when just one man turned this world upside down

If I could be a guest at the wedding, and
Taste the wine that was water moments before
Would I realize what was really in store
That there would be so much more

Would I fall down and worship?
Leave all that I treasured behind?
For a chance to be closer
To the Man who might
Be the One who saves my life?

If I hear His voice call to Lazarus
Stand and stare as my friend stumbles out of the tomb
Witness blind men see their first morning sky
Would I believe what He says to be true

If I was there the night soldiers took Him away
Would I flee the scene like most of His friends
Then watch on the cross what I thought was the end
What would I do then

Would I fall down and worship?
Leave all that I treasured behind?
For a chance to be closer
To the Man who might
Be the One who saves my life?

And what would it be like
After three days gone by
Would I believe what they said
Or wanna see with my own eyes
Put my hand on the scars
Only then realize
My Lord, my God, alive

Will I fall down and worship?
Leave all that I treasure behind?
For a chance to be closer
‘Cause He is still alive
And the One who saves my life!

Praying that I am able to leave all that I treasure behind…

Happy Resurrection Day.
