Sorry for the delay! Prom week along with Easter...add in the district track meet (Cassie's last...sigh...)...toss in some friends struggling and here we are one week later.

But I had to share the new release of the Don't Waste Your Life music video that Lacrae put together with Desiring God. They are on tour now together, getting music and Piper's book in the hands of whoever will listen. They just finished up at Angola Prison and are headed around the country. Check out this link to see when they head your way. We managed to see them in concert in Waco and were so grateful for the clarity of the gospel not only in their lyrics, but in the words they speak boldly to the crowd.

See, what a morning, gloriously bright,
With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem;
Folded the grave-clothes, tomb filled with light,
As the angels announce, “Christ is risen!”
See God’s salvation plan,
Wrought in love, borne in pain, paid in sacrifice,
Fulfilled in Christ, the Man,
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!

See Mary weeping, “Where is He laid?”
As in sorrow she turns from the empty tomb;
Hears a voice speaking, calling her name;
It’s the Master, the Lord raised to life again!
The voice that spans the years,
Speaking life, stirring hope, bringing peace to us,
Will sound till He appears,
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!

One with the Father, Ancient of Days,
Through the Spirit who clothes faith with certainty.
Honor and blessing, glory and praise
To the King crowned with pow’r and authority!
And we are raised with Him,
Death is dead, love has won, Christ has conquered;
And we shall reign with Him,
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!
