It's not Thanksgiving. Not even close. But today I feel thankful. Thankful that I had the day off last Friday. Thankful that I got to spend time with most (but not all) of my dearest friends. Thankful that Justin and I got to spend Easter together celebrating our risen Lord. Thankful for precious time with family. Thankful for home cooked meals and Easter candy. Yes, today I am rejoicing. Life is good and I know that all of the beautiful things in life are from Him. Most of all, I'm thankful for Christ Jesus who was crucified, dead and buried and rose from the grave. Conquered death for me and my sin. How powerful and unimaginable.  I love this hymn, remade by Casting Crowns.

"Living, He loved me. Dying, He saved me. Buried, He carried my sins far away. Rising, He justified freely forever. One day He's coming! O glorious day!"

Thank you Lord for sending your son to die for me and save me from my sin. Christ the Lord is risen! Christ the Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!
