As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Resurrection Celebration ~2017~





I will sing of my Redeemer
He who took the nails for me
I've been purchased, I've been pardoned
Bound to Him I'm truly free




I will sing of my Redeemer
How He sought me while a slave
Loosed me from the curse of sin and
From the power of the grave





I will sing of my Redeemer
Lift my voice to praise my Lord
Ransomed by His blood and mercy
I am His forevermore




I will sing of my Redeemer
He who bore my cross, my curse
Came a servant, chose to suffer
Lifted up and cast from earth





I will sing of my Redeemer
Lift my voice to praise my Lord
Ransomed by His blood and mercy
I am His forevermore



I will sing of my Redeemer
Tell about the grace I've known
Here on earth with those forgiven
And one day around His throne






I will sing of my Redeemer
Lift my voice to praise my Lord
Ransomed by His blood and mercy
I am His forevermore

  2. Well you did not forget to photograph your family! What a great one of Kristen's family...not easy to have everyone looking fabulous! And your mom is so beautifully dressed for the day...where's your dad? Also a lovely photo of your at home family. Your son and family must have been celebrating with the other side of the house. It was wonderful how you wove the words of the Easter hymn into the narrative...special...meaningful...truth...

    1. We had a "small" group on Sunday, didn't we?! Daddy had to work. At age 79, he still works full time! Ryan & Co. were out of town for a surprise birthday celebration honoring Sarah's mom.

  11. Of course I love the song, Jesus our great Redeemer! And the photos. Got any leftovers? The menu sounds great! And you have lilacs. So pretty and fragrant. It will be a while yet before ours appear.

  12. Your Easter photos are beautiful. Loved the lilacs in time for your Easter table centre piece. No chance of lilacs around here ... was snowing the past few days. A bit strange but not totally uncommon. I'm eager to watch our own Spring arriving in short order. Although it might not look like Spring around here, it sure sounds like it what with all the migrating birds arriving in flocks.

    Wishing you a beautiful rest of your day...
