Welcome to Faith 'n Fiction Saturday. If this is your first time participating, please read this post. It will tell you everything you need to know!
This week is more about faith and less about fiction. Since Resurrection Sunday, aka Easter, is one of the most important celebrations of our faith, I thought it would be fun to share with each other one or more of the following:
1) How do you celebrate Easter?
2) Do you have a special Easter memory?
3) Do you have a favorite verse or song for this time of year?
I'm going for option 3...and sharing with you some lyrics from my singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson. The whole song is completely fantastic and if you don't listen to Andrew Peterson, I highly recommend that you check him out. I've never seen the movie High Noon, but that doesn't diminish my enjoyment of this song...here's one of my favorite parts..
"High noon in the valley of the shadow
When the shadows were shot through with light
When Jesus took in that breath
And shattered all Death with his life
So long, you wages of sin
Go on, don't you come back again
I've been raised and redeemed
You've lost all your sting
To the victor of the battle
High noon in the valley of the shadow"
I love that Jesus shattered all death with His life. :)
