Happy Easter!Posted: April 8, 2012
I have no idea how we are at Easter already because I just put away the Christmas tree. Someone told me that life zooms by once your kids get in school and I was all “Whatever. Please, a day is a day is a day and 24 hours passes at the same pace, one minute at a time, no matter how old your kids are.” And now I’m all “Giiirrrllll?? You was so right.”
Anyway, this is actually the chorus to a Christmas song (<– not joking, I totally didn’t plan this) but really, it’s an Easter song:
The Babe in the manger was God’s only Son
Who came to the world to die
The Babe in the manger could never have done
The work of His God on high.
The Babe left the manger and went to the cross
To pay the wages of sin
Your way of forgiveness is not by the babe
But the Christ Who died for your sin.
Thank goodness the chorus doesn’t really end there, because it’s Easter and as the Angel said to Mary (“Mary Magdelene, Mom”, according to the nine year old):
“Why seek you the living among the dead? He is not here for He has risen, just like He said.”
