He Lives!




"What praises can we offer

To thank thee, Lord most high?

In our place thou didst suffer;

In out place thou didst die,

By heaven's plan appointed,

To ransom us, our King.

O Jesus, the annointed,

To thee our love we bring!"

 

~ O Savior, Thou Who Wearest a Crown, K.L. Davidson

 

 

Happy Easter!

Even though I am LDS, when I was growing up, my parents always tried to expose us to lots of culturally diverse experiences.  My grandmother (on my dad's side) was Jewish, and so my parents decided that when we were children we would learn about and celebrate Hanukkah!  And we did - every year!
