Our Easter Sunday started early, as my Farmer and I are youth group leaders for our Senior High Youth at church. This means we have to open up the church in the morning and start the egg bakes and cheesy hash browns for the Easter Breakfast. The Senior High Youth is also incharge of the Sunrise Service. I love putting together the service for the youth and this year's service was based off a poem I found quite awhile ago:
A baby's hands, in Bethlehem,
Were small and softly curled.
But held, within their dimpled grasp,
The hope of all the world.
A carpenter's hand, in Nazareth,
Were skilled with tool and wood;
They laid the beans of simple homes,
And found their labor good.
A healer's hands, in Galilee,
Were stretched to all who came.
To Him to cleanse their hidden wounds,
To cure the blind and lame.
Long, long ago, the hand of Christ,
Were nailed upon a tree.
But still, their holy touch redeems,
The hearts of you and me.

(It was hard to keep LP's attention on gathering eggs rather than wanting into tractors...)
