I cannot believe it has been almost an entire month since my last blogpost. Life has been extremely full... it feels like I've been occupied with saving the "world" and yet I am no Superwoman, as much as I wish I were one.

In times like these, my faith sustains me... it is central to who I am. As I spend time by "streams of still waters", I've been buoyed by words written by amazingly talented songwriters like Lincoln Brewster and Chris Tomlin and Darlene Zschech.

Songs that speak of the God who knows me by name, lyrics like -

You are the Everlasting God, the Everlasting God
You do not faint, You won't go weary
You're the defender of the weak
You rescue those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles

Today was Easter Sunday. I am not eloquent enough to share what this day means to me. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is integral in the epic love story that spans the beginning and the end... and that love story includes me. Because I cannot find words that can fully explain how I feel about this day, I thought I would simply share a picture from our church bulletin from today. What a powerful message of love and sacrifice for me...for those whom I love...for all of creation.

Hope you also enjoy the list of my favourite Christian songs on the right of this post. Their lyrics and music never fail to touch my spirit. Many are found on YouTube. In case the link does not work, simply type in the song name or artist name there and they will be found.

Blessings on your new week.
