Usually this date on the blog marks a special milestone for me: Quill Pen Writer's blogoversary. But this year it conicided with an event that holds far more importance than a blogoversary ever could: Easter. In honour of it, I've decided to postpone this blog's celebratation to next week, and celebrate the most beautiful, sorrowful and special event to ever take place on Earth.

All this week several songs repeated over and over in my mind, entangling with the scripture I read in the most beautiful ways. There are so many truths, so much pain yet so much joy, wrapped up Easter. When Jesus died for our sins, so we could be saved and become children of God, he knew a suffering so deep midday became deepest night. And when he rose again, the whole heavens roared with victory.

I have no stunning words, no dazzling wisdom to share, only the echoing of my heart. May you find as much joy and peace in the verses and song below as I did. <3 

"It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out in a loud voice, 'Father into your hands I commit my spirit.' When he had said this, he breathed his last."
Luke 23:44-46

"'He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.'"
Luke 24:6-7

"For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."
Colossians 1:13-14

See the King who made the sun
And the moon and shining stars
Let the soldiers hold and nail Him down
So that He could save them

See Him there upon the cross
Now no longer breathing
Dust that formed the watching crowds
Takes the blood of Jesus

Feel the earth is shaking now
See the veil is split in two
And He stood before the wrath of God
Shielding sinners with His blood

See the empty tomb today
Death could not contain Him
Once the Servant of the world
Now in vict'ry reigning

Friends, I pray that you've had a beautiful Easter spent with our Saviour Jesus. <3 What truths have struck you most this year? How has God worked in your heart?

  4. Easter was really tough in the US because of all the shut downs. I spent it at home. One thing that I discovered about God in the last year is how he’s our protector. He protected the Jewish people from so many forces of evil to make sure that Jesus could be born. It’s pretty crazy that a tribe of people had God as their personal body guard.

    1. *hugs* I'm sorry you found it tough, the same happened here; my state in Aus has been completely shut down for more than a month. That's a wonderful lesson to have learnt though. <3 <3 It's crazy but amazing! It reminds me of Psalm 23: "The Lord is my shepard, I shall not want."
