I anticipate Resurrection Sunday all year long. When I saw the movie, The Passion of the Christ, a few years ago, it shook me to the core.
I've believed in Jesus Christ's resurrection since I was a young child, and I hold great faith in that.
Now that I spend a lot more time thinking about Christ's horrifically painful death on that wooden cross, I am so grateful for the immense suffering and sacrifice He made for me.
And I look forward to Easter every year, so thankful that we are again reminded of who Christ is and what He has done for each and every one of us.
Debbie Fortnum is a Canadian artist that spent some of her childhood years in southwestern Oregon, where I live. She is a beautiful pianist and vocalist - and has led meaningful times of worship in many services.
Debbie's "Easter Morning Sunrise" song, in her The Beautiful Piano album, is amazingly haunting and beautiful. I think you'll love what you hear, on the video below, and imagine yourself going through some of the disciples' hard times as their leader passed away on that cruel cross. And then, imagine the resurrection! It's a beautiful song:
Hi! I'm Julieanne!
