God Påske

God Påske! Frohe Ostern! Happy Easter!

This morning, I woke up thinking of the hymn we would sing almost every Easter morning when I was growing up in the Episcopal Church. It’s called He is Risen, He is Risen, and I think the lyrics are really great:

He is risen, he is risen!
Tell it out with joyful voice:
he has burst his three days’ prison;
let the whole wide earth rejoice:
death is conquered, man is free,
Christ has won the victory.

Come, ye sad and fearful-hearted,
with glad smile and radiant brow!
Lent’s long shadows have departed;
Jesus’ woes are over now,
and the passion that he bore–
sin and pain can vex no more.

Come, with high and holy hymning,
hail our Lord’s triumphant day;
not one darksome cloud is dimming
yonder glorious morning ray,
breaking o’er the purple east,
symbol of our Easter feast.

He is risen, he is risen!
He hath opened heaven’s gate:
we are free from sin’s dark prison,
risen to a holier state;
and a brighter Easter beam
on our longing eyes shall stream.

I hope you all have a joyous Easter! John and I celebrated by listening to last year’s Easter sermon from the Austin Stone since we don’t have a church here. We also went to the Easter brunch on post. It was so-so. The coffee was the best part.

Tonight we’re having a roast, which Chelsea posted in her recipe blog. It has been cooking for nearly 6 hours already, and it smells delicious!

I commented this morning that I thought it was funny that we were cooking with water and wine on Easter. Yes, I’m goofy.

Also, it’s tradition in my family to always take a family picture on Easter, so here’s our family photo this Easter:

Sorry Béni wasn't included. We were on our way to brunch, and he was kenneled inside

    I hope you enjoy the roast. Mix some corn starch with some water and slowly add is to your drippings to make a good gravy. (You may not need to use much. Taste as you go.) I updated the recipe blog today with a couple more! Sarah (Johnson) was brilliant to come up with that idea!
