Today was a wonderful day! I would have liked to go to church today but that would not have been wise so instead I played piano and worshipped at home. We got together with our family this afternoon at Nathaniel and Ardie's to celebrate my birthday with the family and be together for Easter. Joe and Audrey came, too, with their family so we were all together with the 13 of us. It was a great family time and we could eat, laugh and talk and just be together. Audrey took it real easy but it was so good to see her there and though she is sore and tires easily, she also could enjoy the time.
You know, 24 years ago, this was about the time I was finished 8 months of chemotherapy for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. It was around Easter time and we sang Because He Lives in church then. Today that still is such a powerful and meaningful song for me and it holds just as true today as it did then.
Because He lives I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future.
And life is worth the living just because He lives!
