i was so blessed this morning at church.
there was lots to be blessed by... worship was heartfelt and rockin'. the choir was awesome and just lifted the praise that much higher. the carew family sang 'my chains are gone' by chris tomlin. mike & jamie sang a song called 'ready to believe'. our pastor spoke of 'His incomparable resurrection'. it was all glorious. Jesus, my risen Saviour, was exalted and lifted high.
but it was the words of a media* that truly broke me. (it's funny. everyone's so different and it amazes me how God speaks to each one of us.) the folks in the media were talking about what Christ meant to them, and Easter and the fact that Jesus was now their Friend...they were found. but the lady at the end said, "the tomb may be empty, but my heart is FULL." and that - well, THAT there sums it all up for me. my heart is so very FULL.
i'm so thankful for the cross and the fact - FACT - that Jesus was willing to pay the price of my sin...and die the ulimate death. because He did what He said He would do - rise from the dead - i have the ultimate hope. i have the hope of eternal salvation. the hope for all my tomorrows. that nothing is impossible for God. that i can have this same power in my own life.
this day changes everything.
i was also blessed today by coming home and finding a link to this new rob bell video on a friend's facebook wall...
enjoy. and happy easter.

Yep, you read that right. It’s HOLLYHOWEphotography (caps for my name, no spaces) and I am a natural light portrait & wedding photographer in Moncton, New Brunswick.
I love what I do and I’m obsessed with belly laughs (if you can make me laugh, you’re my favourite. Let’s face it – you’re ALL my favourite!!), good light (golden hour pretty much anywhere) and a good cup of joe (not my hubby – ha! the caffeinated kind). So thrilled you’re here and checking out my work!
