Easter: I Bow

Written and originally posted on Easter, April 12, 2009.

Today is Easter.

Bumblebees buzzed as I snapped pictures of the kids in their Easter finery.

Easter candy gobbled quickly by little mouths.

Warm apple pie and ice cream for Easter dessert. Lunch dishes in the sink.

A busy day. Church, lunch, taking E to the movies this afternoon, supper.

Playing outside, playing inside.

Aliens fought Hotwheel cars while video games beeped and Barbie dolls received make-overs.

It has grown quieter as sleepy eyes and yawns have given way to sweet dreams.

Today is Easter.

I sit at my Savior’s feet in adoration and awe.

In the noisy distractions of daylight, He is here.

In the stillness of night He is here.

He is my only Way, Truth, and Light.

I cannot go to the Father except through Him.

My knees bow, my tongue confesses He is Lord.

He is the Word made flesh.

He died and rose again.

He forgave all my sins.

He set my heart free to run in the path of His commands.

His name is above all others.

He is my Savior.

Before Him I bow.

Jesus.

“I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praises to my God as long as I live. May my meditation be pleasing to Him, as I rejoice in the Lord.” Psalms 104:33,34
