I have no idea why Emma has all these special poses, Anna has one, and the rest have zero. I'm guessing we were running late. We normally sit in one of the first few rows at church; for Easter we were in the top two rows of the balcony! We had a great view of our church, which has a beautiful sanctuary.
One of the statements our pastor made during the sermon has really stayed with me:
"Don't be offended with Christ because of Christians."
Christians, because we are sinful people, will fail you. Christ never will. He proved it in many ways, and still proves it today, but most dramatically by dying on a cross and rising again to claim final victory over death.
Christ the Lord is risen today! Hallelujah!!
