Take a break from the world and experience God's love for you today! :)
As my pursuit of creating art digitally is expanding I googled, "Top Digital Artists" today. This guy came up! If you have time, it's a beautiful, short, multiple-award winning film about this 97 year-old artist, his life and art. Enjoy!
The lovely poem Hal mentions (below) is by New Jerseyan, Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918)
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

The Lord is returning soon to bring His bride home.
We'll be worshipping like this forever. Amen-- Come, Lord Jesus!
On Sunday, our pastor's son, Pastor Dan Feola shared this message about his struggles with anxiety and depression. He offered a message of HOPE to those who may be suffering also. As someone who's been there, it's one of the best messages I've ever heard! Some highlights:
• "You are OK, even if you're struggling with deep, dark feelings."
• "Don't judge your worth on some else's Facebook feed."
• "You don't have to die to end your pain!"
Amen, Pastor Dan!
When Evan got home from a walk this morning, he saw what he thought was a worm crawling in our front yard.
Upon closer inspection, it was hundreds of what we've come to identify as a "swarming mass of larvae." Ewwwwww!!!!! (Click here for more info) By the time I took this video, they were crawling into the dirt.
When I was in the choir at Victory in the 90s, we used to sing this song at Easter. I LOVE it-- it's phenomenal!
I hope you enjoy it, too! Do you have any favorite Easter songs?
Have you heard the Gospel (the Good News)?
