Reconciled.

 Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God's glory.   Romans 5:1-2 (NLT)


I hope everybody is having a fantastic Easter! We just got back from church are are about to head over to Jeff & Katie's for our impromptu Easter lunch/dinner (Katie and I decided at the last minute to cook and went to the grocery store at like 8pm last night - ha!).  

Harrison is pretty unaware of his first Easter. Something about being only 4 months old? I didn't get him an Easter basket this year because he's a little too young to appreciate one. But I did dress him up in a sweater vest (of course)!  :)  


Happy Easter from the Boyds!

 
Harrison had his 4 month pictures taken yesterday. The shoot was short and sweet because somebody was really cranky and in desperate need of a nap. We went with the Easter theme:



 






I have been soaking in the meaning of this day and it is just so overwhelming. How blessed are we to have such love and mercy given to us! Hope you all have a great day! I'll leave you with a song they played at church this morning. I love this song and the lyrics are especially appropriate today.

In Christ Alone
written by Keith Getty, Stuart Townend

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.

I LOVE that song, and just remembered it's on my crashed MP3 player.

Happy Easter!
