He is risen!
He is risen indeed!
“How fun!” I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week. Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:
We’re posting on Thursday this week in honor of Good Friday and Easter. How Fun! will return to its normal Friday schedule next week.
Getting the holiday meal on the table takes a little orchestration. I find it helpful to make a little chart that tells me what time I should put each dish in the oven. This way, everything is ready to go at the right time. Hopefully. Yeah. Ed whipped up a chart for this very purpose. Click the image below to download the PDF file to your computer. Let me know if it helps with preparing your holiday meals!
Have you every read The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel? It’s a fantastic book with lots of evidence that supports the biblical account of who Jesus was. It’s been turned it into a DVD documentary. Brittany at 17 Hours is have a wonderful giveaway for this very DVD.
I saw this video from Rend Collection at The Good Life. It is worth watching the whole thing. We serve a God of celebration!
I want to thank Outside the City Gate for the book Love Idol by Jennifer Dukes Lee that they are sending me from their giveaway. They give away a free book every week! I think that there will definitely be some things for me to learn from this book.
What we are eating next week:

Have a great weekend! Remember Philippians 4:8. “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

I am reading the gospel accounts in Mark and John. I am overwhelmed again by His love for us.
Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.”
Lift Up Your Hearts, Ye People
Paul Gerhardt 1653
Lift up your hearts, ye people,
In songs of glad accord,
And in your adoration
Praise Christ, your risen Lord.
For He hath won the victory,
O’er sin and death’s dark night,
And filled the gloom and darkness
With resurrection light.
Now let the earth be joyful
In springtime’s bright array,
Let hearts downcast and lonely
Rejoice this Easter day;
The grave hast lost its triumph,
And death has lost its sting,
O, sing in exultation
To Christ, your risen King!
May the God of all peace, goodness, and righteousness flood your soul this Resurrection Sunday. May His love penetrate every area of your heart.
