Rain, Rain, Rain!

If April showers bring May flowers, The state of Virginia is the place to be in the month of May. It should be beautiful for all the rain we have had lately. It was so dark when the alarm went off this morning that I wanted to pull the covers over my head and pretend it was a vacation day. I could hear a steady rain on the roof as I rolled out of bed.

There is plenty to do in preparation for Passover next week. This is the time of year that I look forward to sitting down around the table with my family while the story of God's redemption plan for man unfolds. There are many things that need to happen before then. But because Jesus the Messiah has come, taking a lamb to the temple to be slain is not one of them. The price has been paid for our sin. It's the season to celebrate freedom for the captives. And we hope to do just that.
